Dr. Durney is an APTA Orthopedic Certified Specialist and has pelvic floor rehabilitation training from the Herman and Wallace Pelvic Rehabilitation Institute. Her pelvic health training focuses on treating pelvic floor dysfunction and related issues in the pelvis, hip, and spine. Her pelvic floor treatments involve assessment including movement patterns, ligament structure, current activity level, and pregnancy history. She believes that treating the whole person is the key to complete health and wellness and to help her patients achieve their goals.
Holly has continued to advance her manual skills with a certification in dry needling through Kinetacore and additional courses through the Maitland and McKenzie Institutes. She also is a certified Kinesiotaping practitioner with additional training in the treatment of TMD and cervicogenic headaches through the use of craniosacral therapy and upper cervical manual techniques.
Along with pelvic health, Holly has a strong background in treating performing artists including figure skaters, ballet dancers, Irish dancers, and Broadway performers. She began her career in northern Virginia working backstage with the Washington ballet with Body Dynamics, Inc. Through her work with dancers, she developed a passion for the treatment of the hypermobile patient. She has pursued this passion by instructing a continuing education course on Fibromyalgia and Hypermobility Syndrome to PTs, OTs, and PTAs at Maryland Allegany College and Anne Arundel Community College. Holly continues to work to incorporate recent evidence on the use of aerobic exercise in the treatment of Fibromyalgia patients along with pelvic stabilization for hypermobility and Ehlers Danlos patients.

During graduate school, she also worked as a NASM certified personal trainer at the New York Sports Club in midtown Manhattan performing one-on-one training as well as boot camp Central Park sessions.
