Lori graduated from the University of Evansville and interned at Harlaxton College in Grantham England. She earned her doctorate in physical therapy in May 2016 and always enjoys continued learning. Her new focus is on manual therapy techniques to release tension patterns in the nervous system.
Growing up with a father who had over a dozen spine operations and chronic pain, Lori learned about physical therapy at a young age. She spent a great deal of time in hospitals, rehab centers, and pain clinics and experienced how chronic pain affects the entire family.
Fortunately or unfortunately, she rolled her car in her teens and began to have progressively severe daily headaches and neck pain. Since traditional physical therapy and exercise provided only temporary relief and she did not want to live on pain medication, she started her quest. She completed advanced coursework with the Upledger Institute in craniosacral therapy, somatoemotional release, myofascial release, laser therapy, and visceral manipulation. She can now say that headaches are a rare occurrence and neck pain pops up only a couple times per year depending on activities.
She lives an active life with her husband and 3 girls who adore Montana, music, and the outdoors.

All movement dysfunctions
Spine (Neck and Back)
SI Joint Dysfunction and Tailbone Pain
Hip and Pelvis
Ankle and Foot
Vestibular Dysfunction (BPPV, Vertigo, Impaired Balance, Unsteady Gait, Fall Risk)
Dani decided to be a physical therapist when she was 14 years old. She tore her ACL playing competitive soccer. She spent a year rehabilitating her knee and became very interested in how the body works and moves. Dani went on to play for the Olympic Development Team, FC Milwaukee Club soccer, and Division One soccer at the University of Evansville on a full athletic scholarship. Since then, she has had five knee surgeries and two wrist surgeries. Her interest in knowing more about the body continued to grow.
Dani attended undergrad at the University of Evansville in Indiana and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Exercise Science and minor in Sport Psychology. She graduated with her Doctorate in Physical Therapy in 2012 from Carroll University in Waukesha, Wisconsin.
Since graduation from PT school Dani has trained with the Gray Institute and got her Certification in Applied Functional Science. The past five years she has been training with the Institute of Physical Art practicing Functional Manual Therapy. She sat for certification August 2017. According to Dani the IPA has changed her life both personally and professionally.” I am a functional therapist, which is the premise of the IPA. This ongoing education has led me to look at the body as a kinetic chain and strive for efficiency of movement by addressing mechanical dysfunctions/imbalances, addressing motor control, strength, and endurance of muscles. I want to get to the bottom-line and underlying driver of a patient’s symptoms and inefficient movements.” Whether you have a pain complaint, a lack of movement, inability to perform your favorite activity, or you just want to be more efficient than you already are, come experience Functional Manual Therapy.
Outside of the clinic Dani and her husband spend as much time as possible outdoors biking, skiing, hiking, fishing, camping and being with friends and family.
