Why should patients choose you as their provider instead of others in the area?
My treatment approach uses an individualized combination of manual therapy and an emphasis on exercise and movement to restore strength, range, and function to clients so they can continue to perform at their best. I believe in a strong education component to any treatment to help the client understand the “how” and “why” of their condition and to prevent reoccurrence of injuries. I have also taken courses to gain further advance my skills in manual therapy, exercise prescription, and pain management.
What are the top 3 treatments that you focus on?
Manual Therapy Personalized home exercise programs Education
What are you proud of in your practice?
I am proud of my ability to empower clients that I meet. People often come in to see me thinking that because they have pain, they can no longer do things. Being able to show them ways to perform activities that they find important and emphasizing what they can still do gives great relief and increases mental well being.
