Ann loves getting to know her patients, helping them to solve their problems and trying to figure out how anatomy, physiology, biomechanics interact so she can come up with the best solutions. She believes that successful outcomes can be achieved by empowering patients with knowledge and providing them with the tools they need to manage their conditions. She enjoys helping patients get back to doing the things that are important to them.
