Dr. Corinne Cooley is a licensed physical therapist, working through the Stanford Pain Clinic. Corinne completed her undergraduate studies at University California, Davis graduating with a minor in Psychology and  Bachelor of Science degree in Exercise Biology. Following her undergraduate work, Corinne pursued her Doctor of Physical Therapy degree at the University of the Pacific.  Prior to joining the pain management center, Corinne completed a residency in orthopedics through the Cayuga Medical Center in upstate New York, where she realized her passion for helping others with chronic pain.

In her current role, Corinne works closely alongside Stanford Pain Medicine’s team of physicians, physical therapists, nurses, and psychologists to develop comprehensive treatment plans that seek to improve the lives of those living with persistent pain. Corinne’s role within the pain medicine team specifically includes developing non-pharmacological ways (i.e. movement, exercise, and mindfulness) to help restore meaningful movement, improve physical function, and better overall quality of life. Corinne has co-developed the Back in ACTion program with Dr. Heather King, one of Stanfords’ most intensive outpatient group designed to rehabilitate those with chronic pain. Since joining Stanford’s team, Corinne has continued to further her professional education by finishing her Therapeutic Pain Specialist Certification through the International Spine and Pain Institute and become a Tai Chi for Rehabilitation Instructor through the Tai Chi for Health Institute.

In her free time Corinne enjoys spending time with her husband and son and being active and enjoying the trails in the Bay Area.
