OUR TREATMENT APPROACH
At PCC we focus on finding the route cause of our patient’s injury and tailor their treatment plan to prevent it from re-occurring in the future. We combine various forms of therapy in our treatment plans in order to optimize patient's results. Our goal is to change the health care industry’s use of treatment to a proactive and preventative system where patients have regular functional assessments and treatment BEFORE they experience any sort of pain or restriction.
Below is a comprehensive list of services we provide.

Amanda has been a life-saver for me! She's been my therapist for years now.
My athletic background is in CrossFit, but I love running as well. I found her when I was having issues with my shoulders. She helped me get my strength back, as well as gave me exercises to do in order to keep strong and fit. She understands CrossFit and provided extensive information that made me feel confident going back into the gym. Now, over the years, she has supported me with so many aspects of health. She re-aligned my hips and opened up my back - a lot changes after two babies! My husband had a skiing accident, and she provided treatment for his concussion. And most recently, I had meniscectomy and ACL reconstruction surgeries. I was so thankful to see her pre and post surgery. Her treatment approach included decreasing pain, while increasing mobility and muscle recruitment. It is remarkable at how fast she was able to get me back on my feet. It is always a relief walking out of her office! I refer many people to Amanda, because I love her style and approach to health and wellness - she is knowledgeable, holistic and gets to back to your life quickly and safely.
