Fly fishing is one of Chani’s favorite summer activities

Chani is active in a variety of area activities, including fly fishing, hiking, rafting, wakeboarding/surfing, snowshoeing, skiing, and photography. She also enjoys spending time with her family and friends.

Chani’s PT tip: Core stabilization is of great importance for whole body injury prevention and rehabilitation. From back and neck pain to knee, ankle and shoulder injuries–having a strong core can reduce painful compensation patterns during recovery and prevent future injury.
