Sabrina earned a Master of Physical Therapy degree from Concordia University, Milwaukee, Wisconsin. As required by the state of Wisconsin, she completed numerous continuing education courses during her time as a licensed physical therapist (1999-2015). This course work was mostly attained through the Institute of Physical Arts (instituteofphysicalart.com). This course work included:
Foundations which focused on soft tissue restriction identification and release of those restrictions.
Functional Mobilization I & II instruction in advanced mobilizations of soft tissue and identification of joint restrictions and necessary techniques to improve joint mobility.
Cervical Thoracic Integration focused on how the cervical and thoracic region integrate. Identification of restrictions in these areas that limit mobility and how to mobilize them using hands-on techniques.
Lumbo-pelvic Integration focused on how the lumbar and pelvic regions integrate. Identification of restrictions in these areas that limit mobility and how to mobilize them using hands-on techniques
Functional Gait focused on identifying restrictions in different areas of the body that influence faulty gait patterns.
Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation focused on restoring normal movement patterns to different areas of the body using neuromuscular patterns.
Functional Mobilization Upper Quadrant focused on the identification of faulty movement patterns in the upper body, the causes, and the hands-on techniques to correct the joint and soft tissue restrictions that limit this region’s function.
Functional Mobilization Lower Quadrant focused was the same as Functional Mobilization of Upper Quadrant but applied to the lower body.
Back Education Training focused on body mechanics training and proper movement patterns to limit future injury to the back. Includes education and training of exercises to facilitate the movement patterns.
Spine I through the University of St Augustine utilizing Stanley Paris’ technique in improving spine mobility through direct joint mobilization.
In 2015, Sabrina chose not to renew her state license in order to practice as a complementary and alternative medicine practitioner. She is not practicing under a healthcare license granted by the state of Wisconsin. She is practicing as an unlicensed complementary and alternative health care practitioner. Professionals from many areas of healthcare seek her for treatment. This includes MD’s physical, occupational, and speech therapists, dentists, chiropractors, massage therapists, and their family members. Her diligence in finding the solution to your condition combined with her exceptional skills and compassion equates to excellent outcomes.
Connie earned a Master of Physical Therapy degree from Concordia University, Milwaukee, Wisconsin. As required by the state of Wisconsin, she completed all necessary continuing education courses during her time as a licensed physical therapist (2001-2015). Much of her continuing education courses included classes taught by The Institute of Physical Arts. These classes focused on manual therapy along with education on how the body functions as a whole. This coursework is known for extensive and intensive lab-style instruction in order to fully grasp the knowledge and apply the information. Hands-on techniques, known as manual therapy, were taught in order to identify and mobilize soft tissue restrictions throughout the body. She completed back education training through this institution to gain additional education and training of soft tissue mobilization specific to the back muscles, recognize abnormal movement, and learned exercises to facilitate healing movement patterns for the spine. Additional classes she attended from other continuing education sources covered the fundamentals of the foot and ankle, biomechanics of human gait, and the impact on the lower extremity. This allowed her to further identify normal and faulty movement patterns.
In 2015, Connie chose not to renew her state license in order to practice as a complementary and alternative medicine practitioner. She is not practicing under a healthcare license granted by the state of Wisconsin. She is practicing as an unlicensed complementary and alternative health care practitioner.
Although Connie is revered as a leader in her profession, her heart for people is what you first notice.
