I had to build my career with knowledge and skill in lymphedema. Results matter, let me show you!
I am a certified Orthopedic Specialist with extensive training in gait analysis, foot and ankle orthosis fabrication and biomechanical evaluation. I have developed a systematic results-driven program for runners to maximize their function and minimize their injuries. My goal is to teach therapists how to enhance segmental core stability to improve overall fitness and performance. -Miriam Nelson, MPT, COMT, OCS
