Combining her love of travel with her interest in ortho-rehabilitative problem solving, Tina studied physical therapy through the European School of Physiotherapy, an international program of the Hogeschool van Amsterdam in the Netherlands. Soon after returning to the US, while working in an outpatient orthopedic clinic in Baltimore, MD, she took her first class from the Postural Restoration Institute (PRI), and has never looked back. She finds the PRI approach's rapid improvement, and the ability for her patients to continue treating themselves to be unique and empowering, and that the success of the technique in treating orthopedic problems translates across a wide range of activity and ability levels. Tina earned the Postural Restoration Certification in December 2013.
The Postural Restoration Institute (PRI) is built around 30 years of clinical practice associated with recurring successes of specific patient treatment programs. We established reproducible, outcome-based programs based on consistent evidence-based correlations, discovered with patient biomechanical, respiratory, and neurological functional patterns and limitations. My passion for the integrated systems of the body has resulted in an examination and intervention process of the asymmetrical human body called Postural Restoration.
