Professional PhilosophyMovement is life. My job is to help my patients reach their goals by educating them on proper movement patterns in sport, at work and for life. A typical session with me will include a joint by joint assessment analyzing what areas are dysfunctional and causing you your symptoms. Treatment includes manual therapy, corrective movement pattern cues, and various motor control drills based on your goals and needs.

"Patterns and sequences remain the preferred mode of operation in biological organisms. Patterns are groups of singular movements linked in the brain like a single chunk of information. This chunk essentially resembles a mental motor program, the software that governs movement patterns. A pattern represents multiple single movements used together for specific function. Storage of a pattern creates efficiency reduces processing time in the brain, much as a computer stores multiple documents of related content in one file to better organize and manage information." - Gray Cook on movement patterns.
