Through her ability to integrate her manual skills, knowledge of the spine, knowledge of pelvic floor dysfunction , core strengthening through Pilates, and pain science education, she is able to customize patient care and improve their function. She is committed to her patients and will work closely with the doctors and other healthcare professionals to ensure a team approach for optimal outcomes.
