Philosophy of care
I aim to positively influence the lives of my patients by using evidence-based care to effectively evaluate and treat their physical dysfunction and get them back to their highest level of function.
Why Alison went into physical therapy
My participation in high school and college sports evolved into a fascination with the human body and how it works. I love the challenge that each new patient brings with his or her different life experience and goals. These combined with my desire to positively affect the lives of others lead me to a career in physical therapy.
Favorite advice to give patients
Knowledge is powerful and change takes time. I want to work together with my patients to help them understand what is going on in their bodies so they can take active part in their treatment, care and prevention.
I like being outdoors in the woods and next to water, spending time with my husband and children, swimming and reading.
