Professional Philosophy

A one-on-one approach to maintaining and addressing the entire body. It's not enough to just fix an issue or put a band aid on it, one must find the cause and root of the issue. It is no longer appropriate to just put patients through exercise, we as doctors of physical therapy must know the why and how for our treatments. The body is smart and will learn compensations to continue to move, but at some point, these faulty movement patterns will cause more harm than good, and it is before this process that physical therapists are important. We must teach everyone how to move properly, and if you take care of your body, it will take care of you!

You must be the change you wish to see in the world---Gandhi
I never ask my patients to do anything I can't do!

***Cash based, one-on-one, hands on therapy with a Doctor of Physical Therapy, no assistants or aides. Open communication, with patients involved in every step of their physical therapy process, including immediate access to the therapist via direct email, text, or call.
