Why should patients choose you as their provider instead of others in the area?
I truly believe that our role as physiotherapists is to educate our clients on the root cause of their pain and injuries and to empower our clients to be able to self-manage and self-treat their injuries through exercise so that they can return to doing what they love to do.
What are the top 3 treatments that you focus on?
Individualized exercise prescription including strength and conditioning principles Manual Therapy Including Joint mobilization and Manipulation, Spinal Manipulation Contemporary Medical Acupuncture and Dry Needling
What are you proud of in your practice?
I really enjoy when clients tell me that they feel confident managing and treating their own injuries, or when they’ve hit a new PR at a race, at the gym, or just getting back to what they love doing.
Which cases do you enjoy treating? Why?
I really enjoy treating the shoulder. It’s an incredibly complex and interesting joint. Shoulder injuries have a huge impact not only on our ability to participate in sport but also in our daily lives.
