She sees patients ranging from adolescent athletes to seasoned veterans. Her clinic is also involved with Highline College Women's Soccer, with the therapists providing the team with their primary source of injury prevention, movement re-training, and rehabilitation.

Professional Philosophy

Corley utilizes the principles of the Movement System Impairment (MSI) theory as her foundation for physical therapy treatment. These syndromes were developed by Shirley Sahrmann, and the examination of mechanical musculoskeletal pain is based on movement patterns and applied kinesiology in order to determine the kinesiopathogical impairments and associated movement dysfunction. Impairments in movement, alignment, muscle length, stiffness, and performance, and pattern of movement are assessed. Treatment focuses on developing and teaching a precise therapeutic exercise program, correcting alignment and movement patterns associated with functional and fitness activities.
