Lani believes that each individual is unique and she is willing to work with each and every one of her patients on a treatment and management plan tailored to their specific needs. She enjoys incorporating a range of techniques into her treatment, including both direct and indirect techniques, paired with exercise rehabilitation or chronic pain management strategies to achieve the best outcome in her patients.
