Lorraine Flaherty, PT
What I value most is communication and assisting each person in the discovery of new ways to approach pain and the body.
I view the patient and physical therapist relationship first and foremost as a partnership. My primary goals are to be fully present and open to all possibilities with each patient. This allows me to help teach specific options for reaching goals and assisting in the transition to independent management of chronic conditions in the long term.
I chose to be a physical therapist because I am fascinated with the possibilities within movement and I enjoy working one on one with each patient.
Why The Everett Clinic?
I love the team approach to pain problems. I value working with my co-workers on an individualized plan for each patient. I am grateful for the opportunity to work exclusively with pain patients.
