One of Kristen's main goals with her patients is education about their injury and how to treat themselves independently. Kristen uses a mix of manual therapy, stretching and strengthening, and core stabilization to help her patients improve. She finds that if a person understands where their pain is coming from and why they are doing a certain exercise, it is much easier to self-manage their symptoms and avoid future injury.
