Why should patients choose you as their provider instead of others in the area?
From being in pain myself, to seeing my peers and their concerns, I have a genuine interest in finding the root of the problem. As a therapist I enjoy looking at the body as a whole, as I believe there's always multiple routes to the problem at hand. As well as I love to be open and honest of what I find or what to consider for a progression towards a client's goals. Goals being reducing pain, returning to activity, regaining range of motion and so forth.
What are the top 3 treatments that you focus on?
Every case is an opportunity to learn, so I enjoy seeing everything. If I had to be nitpicky, maybe forearms and hands? I feel it is one of the more neglected areas in people, and there's so many muscles to work with.
What are you proud of in your practice?
I am proud to have direct cause and effect to the clients I see, and being able to help in any way I am able to.
Which cases do you enjoy treating? Why?
I enjoy deeper tissue work, muscle energy techniques, and myofascial release techniques.
