“I strive to do my best for every patient by drawing from a variety of techniques, staying current with research, and learning from other rehabilitation specialists. My expertise is in observing and assessing movement, choosing treatment strategies to improve dysfunctional patterns of movement, and educating patients on causes of and ways to avoid injury. I develop treatment plans based on the concept of regional interdependence–impairments that seem to be unrelated in a separate part of the body may contribute to, or be associated with, the primary complaint. In order for physical therapy to be successful, patients must be active participants in the rehabilitation process. This collaborative effort ensures the best possible outcome of improved health.”

“I believe each patient’s “story” is unique and I love developing an individualized treatment program specific to their needs and goals. I enjoy teaching patients about their body and their injuries and I find patient education to be essential in the overall success of the patient’s rehabilitation. I use an eclectic approach based on the skills and experience I have gained through 28 years of patient care, continuing education, and peer collaboration. My background in Nutrition as well as my medical knowledge as a Physician Assistant allows me to give my patients a comprehensive approach focusing not only on their rehabilitation but their overall health and wellness. I have had the opportunity to work with some of the highest level athletes through USA Track and Field, USA Decathlon, San Jose/Cleveland Ballet, United States Figure Skating Association, and MLB – San Francisco Giants and it has helped me to fine tune my clinical skills.”

Lauren rocks. I appreciate her active listening to the problem, her patience in making sure I am doing an exercise correctly, and her willingness to explain why I am doing an exercise. She is also an incredibly congenial person and makes PT enjoyable.
My therapist makes me feel positive every time I visit. I enjoy doing exercises and talking about how we should use our body to stay healthy.
Therapydia is great and working with Andy has made a huge difference in my posture and foot pain. I think this is a really important part of meeting my physical goals. Thanks!
