As a Physical Therapist, Dr. Wolanin is dedicated to helping patients, many of whom are recovering from some type of surgery, heal faster and feel better. Whether she’s applying different techniques such as heat, cold and electrical stimulation or recommending a specific exercise program that targets the troubled area, Dr. Wolanin uses her expansive knowledge and well-honed skills to restore a patient’s strength, flexibility and endurance.
