Carmen has over twenty years of experience in treating musculoskeletal injuries and disorders. She is constantly reviewing and researching to establish new and better ways to get the best results for her patients. She loves to learn more about the body, treatment techniques and exercise, to make her treatment more effective to help people reach their full potential.
Outside of work, Carmen has three children including two boys and one girl that keep her busy, however she always finds time for exercise including weights, running and participating in sports and physical activities with her children.

Carmen also believes it is important to teach her patients strategies to continue management of their condition at home.
Carmen treats all types of muscle and joint injuries whether they occurred at home, work or in sports. She says, “The best part of my job is when people tell me they are feeling so much better and able to return to their preinjury activities”.
