TREATMENT PHILOSOPHY

Laura believes a physical therapist should be a teacher, however that also means that the patient has to put in some effort to practice/learn the skills they are taught. Her goal is to work with the patient so that they understand their condition, and the types of tools they can use in order to manage current issues and prevent future occurrences as much as possible.
