In addition, Caitlin has an extensive background in dance and can offer specialized care to dancers. She herself danced for 16 years and was a member of a nationally ranked dance team.

She recognizes that dancers are a unique cohort that benefit from her knowledge and experience as both a PT and former dancer.
Caitlin also has a special interest in athletes at both the novice and elite level and can offer movement screening for those wanting to increase their athletic abilities. She treats these individuals with the goal to modify rather then eliminate exercise regimens throughout the course of their physical therapy care.
