Professional Philosophy

I look at how my patients move, even those who are not "athletes". I want to know how they squat, bend over, reach for something on the top shelf and transfer those movements into a clinical setting using FMS overhead squat (if able to be performed), single leg half squat (if able to be performed), shoulder abduction tests and straight leg raise tests. I use that information to look at joints/muscles that are not moving or engaging correctly to direct my care to hypertonic or inhibited muscles to prescribe exercises to prevent those joints from locking down again in the future. I rely heavily on adjustments and soft tissue (trigger point therapy) to ensure the injured area has the best chance of healing as quickly as possible. I will utilize RockTape to re-inforce movement patterns to allow for optimal movement for the days following treatment.

Passion, Strength, Honor and Heart. Everything you do in life, do with these qualities.
