She has great success treating various orthopedic conditions of both traumatic and overuse nature. Her special interest lies in dance rehabilitation.

Combining that insight with her knowledge of biomechanics and rehabilitation techniques is a powerful tool to use to help dancers on their way to a pain-free future.

This is another area of Tanya’s interest and she is excited to treat potential patients that are suffering from a variety of pelvic floor and incontinence/bladder issues and patients with chronic low back, pelvic or hip pain.
