Hello!  Thank you so much for your interest about this physical therapy practice.  Blend PT is the result of my own personal health and professional journey.  In my late teens, I was an NCAA Division I athlete who experienced multiple injuries that had roots in my training and self care.  What I didn't realize at the time was that I was also experiencing endocrine and hormonal disruption. Though I am fortunate to be married with 2 children today, my pregnancies and deliveries were also not without complications. I spent many years treating my own injuries and wondering what was at the root of these injuries, my pain and my struggles to feel well despite being very active and eating what I thought was healthy.  This took me down the path of assessing functional movement and looking at the whole body when assessing injury and dysfunction. It opened my eyes to look closely at things like strength and conditioning, Crossfit, yoga, Pilates, and mindfulness. In speaking with fitness professionals, it was evident that there was large gap between traditional physical therapy and the actual function clients desired.  This vision each person has for themselves is unique. For one person, it's participating in a triathalon and for another, it may be taking a walk with loved ones.   I started to ask myself how I could better fill in this gap so that treatment programs could resemble what felt "real" for my clients.  I wanted the physical therapy that I delivered to replicate the movement my clients were trying to restore.  

Then came another pivotal moment in my life that dramatically impacted the way that I wanted to treat.  I was diagnosed with autoimmune disease in 2016.  I was fortunate to be connected with amazing providers who taught me that both traditional Western medicine and Integrative/Functional medicine maximize health.  What I learned started to change the way that I practiced yet again.  It also helped me to appreciate that there are many dimensions to our health and well being.  When working with individuals, these dimensions affect outcomes powerfully.  This idea is the cornerstone of my current practice model.  For me, physical therapy is not just about treating the symptoms of your injury or dysfunction.  I believe it is about optimizing your health.  It is about getting you back to doing what you enjoy and helping your uncover the healthiest version of yourself. The biomechanical causes are important.  They are the primary reason that you are likely seeking therapy.  Appreciating the biomechanics is critical but understanding how your diet, your sleep, your stress/stress management and your environment affect this outcome will optimize the way your are feeling. Let's not just treat the symptoms, let's get to the root of the problem as well so you improve your symptoms but also your overall health!
