The USA uses a manual therapy based physical therapy program which fits nicely with the focus of PhysioFitness! She has worked in both hospital settings and outpatient facilities gathering experience in rehabilitation at all levels of healing.
Michelle works with a variety of patients but focuses predominantly on patients with orthopedic impairments, chronic pain, headaches, hypermobility syndromes such as Ehlers Danlos, and spinal disorders using a holistic approach and manual mobilization techniques. Michelle enjoys learning and has continued to grow in her skill set through education in visceral manipulations, dry needling, exergaming, and lumbo-pelvic disorders.
