“Teamwork helps raise our level of one-on-one care”
Working closely with colleagues and other allied health professionals helps us raise the level of care we provide to patients. Though we emphasize one-on-one care, we consult with each other frequently about each patient’s care and treatment plan. We want every patient to have a good experience and great results.

“A strong commitment to my community”
Not only being a member of the community, but being a contributing member is important to me. Nothing gives me more satisfaction that seeing our patients out enjoying all the activities they might have missed if it were not for physical therapy.

“Sharing my experience with others”
I am excited at what physical therapy can do for the client. I enjoy teaching the body how to move more effectively through the environment and space and, maximizing the client’s potential in returning to his/her job, sport and hobbies. For this reason, I find it important to keep up on the most up-to-date research and therapies to assist the client in their rehabilitation.

“Contributing to the community”
Helping patients resolve their pain and overcoming their injuries is very rewarding. I enjoy using my knowledge as a physical therapy with as many people as I can. Healthcare is beyond the clinic.

Laura O'Dell (sharon2)_ps (2)Physical Therapist
Certified Functional Manual Therapist
 
I enjoy physical therapy because it is challenging and it can change people’s lives.  It is very rewarding to have a person not only get relief of their symptoms, but make changes that have a positive impact on their activity level, daily life, and overall function. I’m also blessed to have the privilege of meeting different people with a variety of backgrounds, work responsibilities, and personalities.
 
One of my goals after graduation was to pass my certification in Functional Manual Therapy (CFMT) through the Institute of Physical Art (IPA). It took seven years, but I passed my testing with honors in 2013. I was drawn to the treatment approach created by the IPA because it addresses the human body as a whole rather than just one body part, and it can be applied to any person regardless of their diagnosis.
