Having treated a wide variety of conditions in outpatient orthopedics, Caryn specializes in Women’s and Pelvic Health physical therapy, TMJ/headache and chronic pain dysfunctions. In her tenure of treating patients, she has found that Fascial Counterstrain has become the most effective treatment in her integrative approach. Fascial Counterstrain has become the powerful technique that has allowed Caryn to treat the most difficult and complex cases, many times where traditional physical therapy interventions have failed. Additionally, Caryn has successfully helped many patient’s improve pain and avoid reliance on pain medications to manage their pain. This gentle technique can impact every system of the body and facilitate improved function, decrease pain and has helped to restore quality of life for her patients that have been life changing.
In her more than 20 years of clinical practice, Caryn has implemented other integrative manual approaches including Myofascial trigger point release, direct joint mobilization via Maitland, Barral Visceral Mobilization, Neuromuscular facilitation with Institute of Physical Art, Herman and Wallace Pelvic Floor Training, and Fascial Counterstrain through the Jones Institute and Mastery Courses through the Counterstrain Academy. She also has training in movement dysfunction and has experience with Gray Cook’s Selective Functional Movement Screening and has rehabilitated patients in Return to Running Programs.
In addition to being passionate about helping her patients return to living their best life and her professional development; Caryn also enjoys many hobbies. Once a collegiate athlete, Caryn enjoys hiking, running and kayaking and spending time with her husband and 3 kids. Caryn also was a dancer and has spent time volunteering with rehabilitating the Joffrey Ballet dancers off stage while they performed at the Kennedy Center. She continues to engage in continued learning in her career and spends many of her weekends in continuing education courses focused on her passion for Fascial Counterstrain and Women’s Health related topics.
