Korey is dedicated to providing care that exceeds patient expectations by delivering treatment that is up-to-date, appropriate, and personalized to fit individual lifestyles and attitudes. She believes in treating the whole person, not just the injury.
Since earning her doctorate, Korey has engaged extensively in continuing education to ensure consistent improvement of her skills as a physical therapist. She completed a year-long residency, at Kaiser Permanente Southern California, focused on the assessment and treatment of orthopedic injuries, that included 150 hours of one on one mentorship and nearly 300 hours in the classroom. She went on to become one of only 9000 therapists nationwide to earn their OCS (Orthopedic Clinical Specialist). Additionally, she spent over 100 hours in a comprehensive movement science course with Kaiser, where she gained expertise in effectively recognizing and correcting faulty movement patterns.To expand her skill set, Korey is learning Active Release Techniques (ART) and has plans to pursue certification early in 2015.
Korey has a background in sports, playing soccer from a very early age. She then switched to running after a series of knee surgeries. Because Korey has been a physical therapy patient herself, she understands what it’s like to go through treatment. She knows what it will take to get patients through their injuries, prevent future injuries, and wants to work with patients to create a strategy for successful recovery. She will also help her patients transition from rehab to wellness care.
Through her own experiences, Korey has special interest in ACL prevention strengthening programs, particularly targeted to the younger athlete. She also integrates Pilates and yoga into therapeutic exercise, to establish a strong core and correct muscle imbalances. She has experience working with all ages and experience levels, from the non-exerciser to the professional athlete.
