The body is complex. We are fearfully and wonderfully made. Sometimes we just need some help to get back on track. Tabitha’s approach is inside out, spine/pelvic centered and outcome driven with test/re-test at every session. The first priority is identifying and treating neurovascular and/or visceral concerns related to abnormal movement patterns and then directed at the joints and muscles for neuromuscular re-education. If you get to know Tabitha, you will hear we need more “spring and space” often where dysfunction is concerned. No matter what brings someone to physical therapy, the whole body system is considered and a team approach is often recommended to achieve this goal. Tabitha often finds that people in a lot of pain or with chronic pain have multi-system involvement that must be addressed in order to achieve wellness and once again realize their potential. The goal is not “good enough”, it is awesomely better!
Tabitha practiced at an out patient clinic that was part of a world-renowned neurological institute, Barrow Brain and Spine, from the time she completed her graduate studies until September 2019. This is an outpatient orthopedic setting with a spine centered approach to any joint rehabilitation. The setting also had more time for patients than most related physical therapy settings so it was an ideal choice. Here she had outstanding mentorship that complimented her osteopathic training and personal philosophies.
Since this time, Tabitha has been in private practice in Scottsdale AZ. More recently Tabitha has opened a second location in Arcadia (Phoenix).
Tabitha earned her degrees in Psychology and Kinesiology from ASU. She earned her doctorate degree in Physical Therapy from A.T. Still University in 2011. Since that time, Tabitha has undergone advanced osteopathic training. Tabitha loves to learn and is committed to regular continuing education opportunities.
