Karen Woodbeck is a certified Orthopedic Clinical Specialist Physical Therapist and Athletic Trainer who has more than 24 years of experience. The primary focus of her practice is on orthopedics, sports medicine, manual therapy, Pilates, taping, and laser. A philosophy Woodbeck follows is “Never Give Up!” originally coined by Winston Churchill, and embodied by the late Fr. Jim Mifsud SM, who was a mentor. Woodbeck enjoys working with clients who are motivated to improve and she is tenacious in her pursuit of helping them achieve their success.
Woodbeck believes in restoring good position with mobility while building stability, and immediately increasing function while reducing pain. Teaching the body how to do this using neuromuscular (brain-body) education is a strong part of client treatment. In order to achieve the client’s goals, Woodbeck utilizes a variety of skills obtained from years of practice incorporating extensive continuing education. Study includes courses with many internationally renowned instructors in the areas of Muscle Energy Technique, Mulligan’s Mobilization with Movement, myofascial release, McConnell technique, Primal reflex release technique, craniosacral therapy, laser, proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation, and Kinesio Taping.
