Gina Hahn is a Severna Park native. She played soccer and lacrosse through high school at Severna Park Senior High. After high school, she studied exercise science at Elon University then earned her doctorate from The George Washington University. Since graduation from the physical therapy program in 2015, she has attended continuing education courses to sharpen her skills in manual therapy, proper tissue loading, and the biopsychosocial philosophy to patient care.
She was introduced to kettlebells in 2016, and earned her Russian Kettlebell Certification in 2019. Kettlebell training significantly changed her treatment plans and improved patient outcomes by loading people sooner than later which helped them feel resilient in their daily lives and recreation. She also initiated and coached small group training in the clinic to help clients bridge the gap between rehab and performance.
Gina’s approach to pain, injury and fitness comes from personal experience. She knows how to manage and overcome back pain, shoulder pain, ankle sprains, and return to strength training safely after a cesarean. She believes in and implements manual therapy and dry needling as a pain modulator during acute or recurring flare ups.
She is driven by teamwork, including utilizing her colleagues’ expertise and referring to other providers when necessary. Gina’s goal for the patient is to help them understand why they developed an injury, teach them to listen to their body throughout the rehab process, and eventually become independent with good self care.
