Approach
Robyn’s specialty is the evaluation and treatment of movement dysfunctions. repeated movements in poor postures set patterns of imprecise or faulty motion that predispose acute injuries and prevent chronic injuries from healing. there is clear, compelling evidence that the more precise a movement is, the healthier the bones and connective tissues associated with it are. once precise motion is restored the body can quickly heal and strengthen the supporting structures that prolong activity and function.

Philosophy
Bainbridge Island Physical therapy focuses on treating the source of the patient’s problem. Patient education and involvement are hallmarks of our treatment philosophy. We strive to help make the rehabilitation process a pleasure by offering a comfortable and relaxed setting with open channels of communication with your physician.

Interest
Robyn danced with Ballet West and continues to enjoy teaching and taking movement classes. She, her husband david, and their four children, enjoy sailing, scuba diving, kayaking, and walking their golden retrievers.
