Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Rafael Salazar II "I believe that there is more to therapy than simply running through exercises and tasks. Every person is different, at a different phase of healing, and a different emotional or physical state when they walk into the clinic. It is my job to make sure that therapy meets every patient at the best place for them in their unique situation. 

I also aim to answer the most important questions:

1) Why are you in pain?

2) What can you do to help fix it?

3) How long is it going to tale? (How long will you need to come to therapy?)

4) What can I, the clinician, do to help you? (What value do I bring to your healing process?)

5) How much is this going to cost? "
