At Haile Physical Therapy and New Life Wellness, the philosophy of our therapists is to treat our patients with love and compassion. We consider the whole body, the whole person to help assess possible underlying factors that may be at the root of the pain and dysfunction or inhibiting progress. The therapists here often see patients who have “failed out” of traditional physical therapy practices while these same patients thrive in our setting. We take time to listen and investigate perpetuating factors that may be slowing the healing process. We have a hands-on approach to reducing pain through a variety of manual therapy techniques that we have honed with upwards of 35 years of practice and nutritional education. We eliminate musculoskeletal pain, modify posture and lifestyle, and educate the patient in exercises and nutrition that help bring balance to their healing.
Let us help you elevate your health to new heights!
Anne has been a physical therapist for over 30 years after graduating from Russell Sage College in NY with a degree in Physical Therapy. She found a passion for working with patients who have Fibromyalgia and myofascial pain issues in the early 1990s and has not stopped working to further her education as a manual therapist to serve those in pain, whether it be chronic pain or acute. She founded Haile Physical Therapy in 2008 after realizing there were not enough PT practices where full attention and time was spent focusing one on one with the patients. Looking at the whole person to resolve any issue that they find to be inhibiting them from functioning at their best has always been part of her philosophy. Through advanced courses in Myofascial Release, Craniosacral Therapy and Dry needling, in particular, she has honed her skills to be a detective looking at the whole body in search of the source of the symptoms. Anne is certified as a Myofascial Trigger Point Therapist in Dry Needling and was the first physical therapist in Anne Arundel County to study this specialized treatment. She is also certified in Functional Nutrition for Chronic Pain as the source of inflammation and pain is often beyond the musculoskeletal system. In her spare time Anne enjoys spending time hiking with her husband, preferably in the mountains, as well as cooking and experimenting with ways to make her favorite recipes healthier.
