On the “Hands-On” Difference . . .
Since day one, MOI and their staff have been extremely supportive and has shared their knowledge with new employees. It is very beneficial to be able to talk to another therapist or have them be able to tape or perform dry needling, cupping, etc. on a patient you are treating so they can achieve their best results. Hands-on manual therapy is so important to help mobilize tissue and gain range of motion required to perform daily tasks without compensation. Olivia has been working with a variety of patient diagnosis, with a special interest in conditions related to spine, knee, and foot/ankle.
On Motivating Patients . . .
I try to motivate patients by relating their goals to activities and tasks that they want to get back to. I always make my plan of care individualized and pertinent to what my patients would like to get back to. I want them to be able to leave therapy feeling 100% themselves again and able to perform daily and recreational activities with ease. I make exercises creative and functional to help get them there.
On Life Outside MOI . . .
When not in the clinic, Olivia enjoys playing slow pitch softball, yard games, movies, puzzles, and spending time with her puppy and loved ones.
