Refine Physical Therapy and Wellness was born in response to seeing a need for individualized, one-on-one physical therapy treatment. I take a holistic approach to patient care. Patient treatment, with Refine PT, involves assessing each individual’s mobility throughout all body regions; lifestyle factors such as sleep, stress, and nutrition; and relating these components to current pain or movement limitation.
I graduated from Wayne State University with my Doctorate of Physical Therapy in 2012. My career started with a passion for treating orthopedic and athletic injuries. As an avid runner and triathlete, it has been my passion to help others improve their mobility in order to achieve their health and fitness goals. During my graduate education I was introduced to Pilates and its complementary nature to physical therapy. I pursued training in Pilates and am a STOTT certified instructor.
My interest and clinical practice in women’s health, and pelvic floor physical therapy developed over the course of my own pregnancies. Even as a medical practitioner, I found it difficult to find information related to safely incorporating fitness and athletic activities during pregnancy. This lead me to advanced training in the evaluation and treatment of pelvic floor dysfunction.
My treatment approach utilizes a combination of manual therapy, instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization (Graston technique), and strengthening/movement retraining to address each individual’s pain and mobility restrictions.
