Her treatment philosophy includes a hands on approach to helping patients have a better understanding of exercises and the manual techniques that will benefit them. This way of thinking is the reason why she appreciates working with a variety of ailments. She loves to see patients who are completely motivated to better themselves. “I find it rewarding to confidently say the patient may be discharged knowing they are doing better than they had before”, she says.
