Biography

I'm a licensed physical therapist for the past 32 years, certified in the specialty of aquatic physical therapy for the past 17 years. I've worked in a wide variety of rehab environments treating burn patients, pediatric patients, neurological patients, orthopedic patients, geriatric patients, cardiac patients, trauma patients, sports injury patients, surgical post op patients. I've held seminars on aquatic rehabilitation for both rehab practitioners and physicians alike.

Why should patients choose you as their provider instead of others in the area?

I am a 32 year physical therapy veteran, experienced in a wide variety of diagnosed conditions. I've specialized in the field of aquatic physical therapy for the past 17 years. I have designed specific exercise protocols and manual techniques to treat specific medical conditions in the water environment. I believe that many patients have been given a second chance at reaching full recovery of function and reduction of pain symptoms, due to being rehabilitated in the water environment! WIth the help of the water environment I've been able to have patients who were sentenced to a life in a wheelchair walk again without any assistant device, or patients with bone on bone arthritis sentenced to getting a joint replacement begin to walk and function with minimal symptoms without any surgical intervention! It's the water and some sound specialized aquatic rehab treatment!

What are the top 3 treatments that you focus on?

Static and Dynamic Balance deficits rehab protocols spinal stabilization/core strengthening protocols severe joint arthritic function restoration I use all physical therapy techniques used on land, in the water environment with added benefits

What are you proud of in your practice?

Bringing "hope" followed by return of function to individuals who have been told they have reached their rehabilitation and functional limits! One patient was told by the top neurologist at UCLA she would be wheelchair bound for the rest of her life, and six years later she walks without any assistive device! Water was the magic ingredient!

Which cases do you enjoy treating? Why?

I began specializing in orthopedic and sports related medical conditions (injuries, post op surgeries, etc) but I now find most diagnosed conditions interesting and challenging! My goal is always for the highest functional recovery possible. With water I have always brought patients to full recovery in twice the speed with half the discomfort vs when I treated in the land physical therapy environment.
