Dr. Taleen Najarian, PT, DPT
Empathy and compassion are values experienced early in my childhood. As my older brother had cerebral palsy, I witnessed first hand his journey through surgeries and rehabilitation. I not only played the role of little sister and side kick, but physical therapy assistant.
As an avid athlete throughout my schooling, I battled injuries and the mental stress of sports performance in gymnastics and soccer. In high school, the perfect storm of events lead to a bout with an eating disorder. However, it was recovery that truly shaped me to be an empathetic and mindful practitioner today. It took a team of healthcare professionals to address all facets of the disorder, the psychological and the physical. I have had patient experiences with medical doctors, functional medicine doctors, chiropractors, psychologists, energy healers, and acupuncturists. Each encounter has taught me what type of practitioner I want, or do not want to be. My observations and frustrations with regard to the delivery of medicine, have fueled my desire to change traditional healthcare.
As a graduate of Oakland University's Doctor of Physical Therapy program in 2012, I emphasize the importance of manual therapy in practice. I have continued to develop skills in soft tissue therapy, dry needling, applied kinesiology, nutrition, and strength training. I also take great enjoyment in being a teaching assistant in the Physical Therapy Department at Oakland University. My approach to treatment is to consider the entire person; encompassing all body-systems, as well as the mental aspects of injury and dysfunction
