Anne Stevenson, Healing Hands Physical Therapy

Anne Stevenson, PT, MPT

Anne was inspired to study physical therapy with a love of working with people and inspiring the love of exercise. She has a Master’s degree in physical therapy from Wayne State University. After practicing in the Detroit area and Florida she settled in Ann Arbor and has practiced here since 2004. Her practice focuses on evaluating movement patterns of the patient to correctly identify problem areas leading to the pain and injury. She emphasizes using hands-on joint mobilizations and muscle energy techniques to address joint tightness and dysfunction. She closely monitors and develops the exercise program created for each patient to develop appropriate functional exercises and sport specific training to individualize the rehabilitation process. She appreciates the opportunity to work at Healing Hands which allows her the one on one time to properly steer the course of treatment.

Anne is constantly updating her manual skills and places a high priority in participating in continuing education courses. Since 2004 she has studied the Osteopathic approach of Muscle Energy Technique at Michigan State University in addition to taking a variety of local courses focused on manual therapy allowing her to develop an effective manual medicine treatment regime for the whole body. She has also taken continuing ed courses to learn the application of Kinesio Tape to aid in healing. In addition, she has prioritized classes focused on the study of movement and application of exercise for orthopedic conditions. More recently she participated in a course to learn the Schroth Method for treatment of Scoliosis in Stevens Point WI and is certified in the Schroth Treatment Method.

In her free time, Anne enjoys spending time with her husband and two children, spending time outside and cooking.
