Margarita (Kalogerakos) Miras, PT, MS, CSCS
I have been practicing and studying the art and science of Physical Therapy for over 20 years.
Each person has their own unique story. Together, we identify and discuss the problem and develop a program specifically tailored to the individual's physical therapy need.
Symptoms of pain or change in mobility are only part of the puzzle. Using clinical reasoning skills and an evidence informed approach, I develop a systematic plan to decrease pain and optimize quality of life.
As a life long student, I am continuing to explore a variety of ways to assess and heal the body. These include the following:
