"The ultimate goal at Recoup is to transition patients from intervention in the clinic to independent management with an understanding of your condition so that you can ultimately "treat" and manage future recurrences yourself.  I think education is the biggest service I can provide, helping patients understand the underlying causes and triggers of their pain enables them to take control and shorten their time in recovery."

Terry uses a compassionate approach to patient treatment that focuses on the complex nature of how we experience pain.  This approach utilizes extensive education, as well as targeted manual and exercise therapy. In a 60 minute appointment she can utilize the combination of these interventions to create the best outcomes for each patient.  While she specializes in the treatment of persistent pain and patients with complex orthopedic disorders, she also treats a variety of conditions from lymphedema, cervicogenic headaches and vestibular disorders, such as dizziness or vertigo.

Terry has been practicing and teaching physical therapy for over 20 years.  She received her master’s degree from New York Medical College and her clinical doctorate in physical therapy from the University of Southern California.  Terry's priority at Recoup is to combine her patients’ goals with the best available medical evidence and her clinical expertise to develop an effective treatment plan.  She works to alleviate symptoms and improve function for patients through manual therapy and focused exercise interventions, allowing each individual to meet their goals and manage their long-term health and performance.

"Terry got me "back up and running" much quicker than the surgeon who operated on my foot had predicted. She explained everything she was doing, both anatomically and physiologically, which I really appreciated. She was always on time, super pleasant and always professional.
I'm an active person with a job and kids and I appreciated the time she took during my visits to maximize speeding up my recovery.The only negative thing I can say is that I'm kind of bummed I no longer need PT with Terry as I actually enjoyed going!"
