Claire is a fellow of the American Academy of Orthopedic Manual Physical Therapy. Her general approach is to first reduce the amount of pain a patient is experiencing, then address the cause of tissue damage and make modifications as necessary. Finally, she'll work with a patient on exercises to prevent a recurrence of injury. She considers patient care a team approach between her and her patients, and her most successful patients work just as hard as she does. In her free time, Claire plays viola in Symphony Parnassus, trains for triathlons with Golden Gate Triathlon Club, and does CrossFit.
