About Ruth

With a background in dance, movement has always been an important part of my life. As a dancer, I understand how frustrating it can be when pain or injury prevents you from moving freely and how good it feels when you can get back to moving optimally. As a physical therapist, I am passionate about supporting you through the rehabilitation process and helping you overcome pain and injury to achieve your goals.
