“While the human body has the innate ability to heal itself, each patient’s healing journey is unique. It is my job as a physical therapist to discover, initiate, and facilitate each patient’s recovery to achieve optimal results. I listen to my patients, then apply my knowledge and hands-on expertise to guide them in the right direction, then accelerate them down their healing pathway to the desired destination.”

“One of my favorite aspects of physical therapy is problem solving for the cause of my patients’ pain. A combination of detailed questions, tests, and analysis help pinpoint the origin of pain, which can sometimes be far from where pain is felt. Once we solve that puzzle, we use different techniques to treat the symptoms AND the cause. That way, patients avoid recurring issues, which is very satisfying as a provider. “

“As a Physical Therapist, I feel it is vital that the client is an active participant in their rehabilitation. I enjoy evaluating a client’s dysfunction, using manual therapy to help with their pain, and teaching corrective exercises to improve their conditions. It is important that the patients continue with their exercises, posture training, and activity modification at home for maximum benefit. I also feel it is important for Physical Therapists to be active in their community promoting health and injury prevention at local sporting events, church clubs, schools, races, and charitable events. “

Being a physical therapist is an extremely rewarding career; I love being able to make a difference in someone’s life every day.”

“As a clinician working with patients of all ages and skill levels, I need to constantly be on my toes and prepared for anything. Every treatment protocol must be designed to be as unique as the person it is for and designed with that person’s end goal in mind. It is also my duty as a certified athletic trainer to maintain knowledge of the most current rehabilitation and recovery methods, in order to give my patients the very best care I can.”

“As a clinician, I believe a positive attitude and an individualized treatment plan can help any patient overcome their obstacles and reach their goals. Through my personal experiences as an athlete, I have seen and experienced limitations and injuries. These experiences have helped me develop effective treatment techniques to help patients not only heal but also build confidence throughout their treatment process. The satisfaction one gets from exceeding their own personal limitations is a feeling she wants to share with others.”
