Current Role Working with Athletes

Currently, about 80% of my patients consist of competitive Olympic weightlifters, professional athletes, collegiate/high school/middle school athletes, CrossFit athletes (general and Games competitors), "weekend warriors". I work with the athletic department of two local high schools (Page & Ravenwood), mainly treating their athletes who suffer acute injury.

Professional Philosophy

Pain is a tricky beast. The general public has been conditioned to think that pain is the problem, rather than a symptom of dysfunction. Pain is typically the last symptom to appear, but the first symptom to resolve. This often makes the patient believe their issue has been completely resolved, or “fixed”. My treatments aim to assist the patient in creating the best possible environment for their body to heal and recover.
