Credentials of Carol Banquer, MD

Within three months of training in the Pilates Method, I found permanent relief from the back pain I had experienced for fifteen years. I found the Pilates Method, a comprehensive approach to the treatment of musculo-skeletal pain and injury, so powerful that I wanted to offer it to patients.

I have studied Pilates since 1992 and have been teaching since 1995. My understanding of the work has deepened through continuing study, training, and personal practice.

In the private practice of rehabilitation and sports medicine, I diagnose and treat patients with acute and chronic injuries. I enjoy working collaboratively with traditional and alternative health care providers. With my medical training and understanding of the therapeutic power of movement, I have a unique perspective to bring to my patients' healing.

Understanding pain and managing pain patients has been the focus of my continuing medical education.
