Liza Piper, Physical Therapist at our Genoa clinic, recently attended a continuing education course in Milwaukee, WI on Visceral Functional Mobilization(TM). This 3 day lab intensive course focused on gaining mobility of structures throughout the abdomen and pelvis. Limited visceral mobility impacts skeletal mobility and function of the involved organ. Abdominal structures can refer pain into the neck, shoulder, back, pelvis and other areas. People who suffer from back or neck pain often have restrictions in the structures in front of the spine including respiratory, digestive and other organs and may benefit from light, non-invasive mobilization of the connective tissue associated with these structures.
Liza enjoys treating a varied caseload including orthopedic, neurological and other medical conditions with a total patient approach. She will use a combination of advanced manual therapy techniques, re-education for effected muscles, and exercise. She is interested in promoting wellness and implementing prevention interventions. She is accepting new patients and would love to speak with you! Feel free to call us at 815.784.6417 for more information or to make an appointment with Liza at our Genoa clinic.
