WHAT OUR CLIENTS ARE SAYING

Jill has been an indispensable part of my family’s health care team for years. She is compassionate, optimistic, and extremely skilled. She informs me about the latest research related to my treatment and helps me to heal. She is fabulous, and I feel so fortunate to work with her toward achieving my health care goals.

The front staff is super friendly even when I was cranky. They are helpful about scheduling appointments on cancellations and even scanned something to me I left behind. My PT is knowledgeable, motivated, and energetic. I’m already seeing improvement.

Erika always makes me feel better both physically and emotionally. I’m so glad to have found her again to help me through this next physical challenge.

 

 

Andrea is great! She listened, thought about the big picture, and had many concrete short and long term ideas. She was empathetic, supportive, and optimistic. She is warm and encouraged me to feel like I can improve in spite of a long history of moderate, chronic pain. I look forward to continuing to work with her. The new app with exercises, video demonstration, and tracking is great!

Irene Walter Johnson Rehabilitation Institute at Washington University/Clinical Faculty Washington University

ALTERNATE UNIVERSE CAREER:
Chef

PHYSICAL THERAPY PHILOSOPHY:
Movement is key to lasting health.  Physical therapists are the most qualified provider to manage your movement system - a collection of systems that contribute to the act of moving from the sub-cellular to the total body level.  I use a diagnostic process to determine the biologic, biomechanical, and psycho-social contributions to your painful condition.  With you at the center of care, and through a dynamic and iterative process,  I discover what is meaningful to you, determine what influences are blocking you from doing what is meaningful, and help you achieve your goals with compassion, empathy, education, coaching, advice, and movement-related interventions.  Your time with me is a "DIY project" with me as the tutor.  It is my hope that I can help you develop an appreciation that movement and exercise is safe, fun, and important for lasting health.  I will teach you to "not get into your own way" when it comes to achieving your movement related goals and dreams.   I hope you will permit me to be your steward to a healthy lifestyle that incorporates movement, exercise, and fitness.   

SPECIALTIES, CERTIFICATIONS, SPECIAL INTERESTS:
I enjoy working with all ages and levels of fitness.  I use a diagnostic method to determine root cause(s) to your painful condition and provide movement related interventions to restore you back to function.  My focus is on providing interventions that optimize your movement and restore or introduce you to a lifestyle that includes all dimensions of movement such as mobility, speed, strength, endurance, balance, and accuracy.  The focus is on what is most meaningful to YOU.  I do have a particular specialty in hip-related conditions, but feel I have a good command of all regions of the body - after 36 years in practice, I have learned a few things.

When I am not seeing patients, I am busy with various writing projects such as a textbook for physical therapy students on therapeutic exercise (Therapeutic Exercise: Moving Toward Function, 4e 2018), and on-line continuing education courses for APTA.  I also teach physical therapists in continuing education on the topic of a movement system approach toward painful conditions.  Always advocating for my profession, I serve as a Delegate for Washington to the APTA House of Delegates.

TREATMENT APPROACHES YOU KNOW BEST:
Diagnosis and treatment of Movement Impairment Syndromes
Biopsychosocial approach to treatment of painful conditions
Maitland approach to manual therapy
Promotion of prevention, health, fitness and wellness for all individuals through various combinations of movement-related interventions.

COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT:
