Chronic Pain, Spine, Headaches/TMJ, John F. Barnes Myofascial Release, Sports Medicine and Orthopedics

No stranger to chronic pain myself, I experienced chronic back pain for more than 20 years due to childhood skiing accident. My relentless pursuit to heal my own symptoms led me to discover the John F. Barnes Method of Myofascial Release. After just 3 sessions, I experienced the amazing relief that traditional medicine and therapies failed to give me. I have since become one of the very few Doctors of Physical Therapy in Wisconsin to gain the prestigious Advanced Myofascial Release (MFR) Practitioner designation through the John F. Barnes Institute. It is my passion to help others just like me who have suffered with chronic pain symptoms. My rare ability to integrate Orthopedic & Sports Medicine Physical Therapy with the John F. Barnes Myofascial Release Method allow my patients to achieve astounding results despite the failure of other approaches.

Women’s Pelvic Health, Chronic Pain, Spine, John F. Barnes Myofascial Release, Sports Medicine and Orthopedics

I began my career conquering the Sports Medicine & Orthopedics world however always felt I was missing something with my chronic pain and spine/pelvic dysfunction patients. Unfortunately, many of these patients would often lose hope as the traditional medical system continued to fail them. Due to my husband’s own journey and some amazing mentors, I realized what was missing; John Barnes’ Myofascial Release and a solid foundation in pelvic health (both of which are left out with traditional PT schooling).
I’ve spent the past several years pursuing Advanced Trainings and Specialties in these areas. I’m proud to now be recognized as one of the few Doctors of Physical Therapy in WI to be certified at the “Advanced” level of the John F. Barnes Myofascial Release Method along with Women’s Pelvic Health & Spine/Orthopedic/Sports Medicine Specialties. My rare ability to combine these advanced skills into a whole-body approach allows my patients to achieve long-lasting improvement even when other approaches have failed. I’m passionate about helping my patients address those missing pieces and returning to truly living & enjoying the life they were meant to live.

Back & Neck Pain, Dry Needling, Manual Therapies, John F. Barnes Myofascial Release, Sports Medicine & Orthopedics

As an active member of multiple sports teams over the years, I have had my share of injuries (especially knee injuries) that sent me to physical therapy. I understand the struggle to get back to feeling good and being active. Helping people heal and regain their mobility, function and desired lifestyle is why I became a physical therapist. As a former athlete and current sports enthusiast, I appreciate working with individuals who are attempting to return to sport. Whether you are a golfer, runner, pickle baller or a weekend workout enthusiast, I am confident that I can help you return to your favorite sport or activity.

After attending a renowned manual therapy specialty graduate school for physical therapy, I knew that I wanted to bring the hands-on techniques that I had learned into the treatment room. I am glad to be able to use my manual therapy skills – specializing in spine/back, hip and neck issues, along with my Orthopedic and Sports Physical Therapy background and Dry Needling Certification, to treat a wide array of patients. I love to look at the person as a whole in order to figure out the root cause of their pain and get them back to doing what they enjoy most. I am passionate about healing the whole patient and helping you meet your health and life goals.
