I am here to work with you to provide the tools necessary for you to meet your individual goals and to exceed your expectations. I evaluate each patient as a whole, not just the body part that is painful or problematic, and analyze your movement system to determine the cause of the problem and work with you to develop the care plan that best suits your needs.
My philosophy is that mobilization/manipulation of the joints or soft tissue is used to improve movement which then needs to be facilitated throughout the new or improved range of motion by means of neuromuscular facilitation techniques. I then train you to use those new or corrected movements in functional pathways. Then, I utilize exercises to strengthen or enhance those new or corrected functional pathways. Each session is designed to help you achieve your goals in the most efficient manner possible utilizing the best evidence based practice techniques available.
