Anna Faulkner - P.T..
I am pleased to introduce myself as a Physical Therapist who has developed a focus in treating the whole person through manual therapy, myofascial release and craniosacral therapy. My skills in pediatrics address areas that include developmental progressions, Neurodevelopment Treatment (NDT), plagiocephaly, and orthopedic/neurologic areas such as torticollis, spina bifida, traumatic brain injury, scoliosis, sensory integration/processing, attention deficit disorders, Cerebral Palsy, idiopathic toe walking, post-operative tendon lengthening/transfers, osteotomies, selective dorsal root Rhizotomy as well as post-Botox injections.
I also serve adults with chronic pain (including pelvic area) brought on by trauma, poor posture over time, surgery (scarring), birthing, and related diagnoses of plantar fasciitis, fibromyalgia, and endometriosis , carpal tunnel and other repetitive strain patterns. All this is complementary to currently utilized approaches received from chiropractors, osteopaths, massage therapy, traditional PT/OT/ST, psychotherapy, movement therapies, gym/fitness programs, yoga, Pilates, taichi, etc.
• Practicing skills gained from certification in Neurodevelopmental Treatment for children and infants;
• Expanding into refinement and evaluation of movement, use of adaptive equipment as well as broadening more into creative treatment options when providing for children and infants;
• Additional education to refine skills including Orthotic/Splinting, Gait training, Manual Therapy (Mobilization for children with Cerebral Palsy, Myofascial Release with craniosacral application) for correction of postural alignment, flexibility, optimizing muscle use and strength;
• Training and experience which are significant in addressing the physical, emotional, spiritual effects of trauma when working with individuals in chronic pain, immobility or impaired function.
