Ashley is a strong believer in regional interdependence. She believes no single injury stands isolated and that a comprehensive evaluation should address multiple systems and body regions. This includes addressing the pelvic floor as it applies to orthopedic conditions such as back, hip and foot pain. She believes best practice means combining strong evidence based research with a patient's goals and personal characteristics and her own therapy style to reach successful outcomes. Physical therapy should be a positive experience, with lots of patient and clinician communication that results in functional gains!
