I am a Physical Therapist in the San Francisco Bay Area treating private clients with a wide range of orthopedic concerns, with a special place in my heart for dancers and performing artists!
An hour appointment where you will receive a comprehensive evaluation and gain an understanding of your injury and how I can help you. We’ll make a plan for how we will work together moving forward in order to reach your goals.
After you have received your evaluation, we will meet for follow up treatments to progress toward your goals. We will work together one-on-one for the entire hour to ensure the best quality of care. Treatments can include interventions such as joint and soft tissue mobilization, instrumented assisted soft tissue mobilization, taping, PNF, targeted strengthening, stretching and mobility techniques. At most, patients are typically seen once per week with decreasing frequency once appropriate.
A complete screening assessment to identify potential risk factors that may contribute to future injury. You'll leave with exercises to help reduce that risk.

Earning your first pointe shoes is a great goal to work toward! You want to make sure you're ready to do it safely and set yourself up for success. This session includes several tests and measures, and then, with your teacher, I will help make a recommendation if you’re ready for pointe!
