Deidre graduated with a master’s degree in physical therapy from The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Her philosophy of treatment is to identify and treat the “root cause” of a patient’s problem by performing biomechanical assessments and utilizing manual therapy techniques and functional therapeutic exercises to restore optimal movement patterns. Deidre strives to provide compassionate and high quality care to all of her patients. She also believes that patient education and working as a “team” are imperative to meet the patient’s specific goals and to return the patient to the highest level of function possible. Deidre has several years of experience treating a wide variety of orthopaedic conditions. Her clinical interests include foot/ankle and shoulder problems, SI joint dysfunction, neck pain, balance and falls prevention, and post-surgical rehab.
