Amber Teal

Physical Therapist


Amber Teal has been a valuable member of the Pediatric Services physical therapy team since 2010. After completing a clinical rotation at Heartspring, Amber officially joined the organization after graduation. Amber enjoys her work at Heartspring because it helps children become more independent and active at home, in school and in the community. She loves the fact that her job is dynamic, challenging and constantly teaching her new things.

Her interest in physical therapy began when her brother tore his ACL in high school.  She watched the physical therapist treat her brother and thought it was fascinating. That coupled with her experience babysitting and volunteering with children in her hometown made pediatric physical therapy a great fit.  

In her time at Heartspring, she has worked with a variety of different clients and diagnoses including but not limited to cerebral palsy, torticollis and plagiocephaly, down syndrome, spina bifida, developmental delay, autism spectrum disorder, and muscular and coordination disorders. She uses a number of different techniques in working with patients. She is certified in Interactive Metronome which is a specialized intervention that improves rhythm, timing, motor sequencing and coordination through the use of a computer-based software system. She has also completed additional training in Bal-a-vis-x, which uses low-cost equipment like beanbags and racquetballs to work on those same skills such as rhythm and coordination.

Amber earned her Doctor of Physical Therapy degree from Wichita State University and her Bachelor’s Degree in Kinesiology from Kansas State University. When she’s not at work, Amber enjoys geocaching, hiking, and kayaking with her husband Tim, as well as reading, playing with her dogs, and cheering on the K-State Wildcats.
