Philosophy of care and typical treatment strategies:
I would probably call myself a ‘Jane of all Trades’ as I have learned several different specialties to help a variety of patients. Now, as a physical therapist with 20+ years’ experience, I have settled into devoting my skills to helping women with pelvic floor issues. I also have a very strong background in orthopedic physical therapy, which not only helps in women’s health but makes me versatile and able to assess a multitude of injuries and conditions. When caring for my clients, I listen closely to formulate the most effective way to address their concerns and improve their function. I like to address the whole musculoskeletal system during treatment. Everything is connected and can be a cause of source of a patient’s problem. Lastly, I am an exuberantly happy person, and I will try to make your session not only beneficial, but fun. Regarding treatment of endometriosis, I use a multimodal approach to help my patient with their issues. After performing a thorough examination, I design a plan of care that is discussed with the patient. Sessions can include manual therapy (myofascial release, soft tissue mobilization and visceral mobilization), postural education, functional and movement retraining, exercises, pain management, and nutritional considerations.
