Angela has extensive experience treating patients with ACL injures, including pre-, post- and non-operative management. ACL injuries are impactful to athletes both physically and mentally, as it often means missed time on the field and away from the sport and team you love. Although surgical intervention is common in young athletes, non-operative management is an option, even for those wanting to return to sport. Angela can educate you on your treatment options and guide you in the decision-making process, supported by the most recent evidence. If ACL reconstruction is the best option, Angela can assure you are prepared for surgery and complete your post-operative rehabilitation, from week 1 to return to sport.

Tendinopathy, or tendinitis, is an overuse injury of the tendon that leads to pain, impaired function, and limitations in physical activity. Tendinopathy is common in the Achilles and patella tendons, and often occurs in athletes who participate in sports with repetitive movement or jumping. Treatment of tendinopathy can include activity modification, taping or bracing, and manual therapy, but the mainstay of treatment is mechanical loading of the tendon via an exercise program, combined with patient education and counseling. Angela is the Research PT for an NIH funded study on the treatment of midportion Achilles tendinopathy and developed a protocol for the treatment of patellar tendinopathy. If an overuse tendon injury is limiting your participation in the activities you love, Angela can help you!
