    Philosophy

    We are all unique in how we move and function, and how we get injured and feel pain, our assessments and treatment should be as unique as we are. We are made up of hundreds of bones and muscles, close to a thousand ligaments and billions of nerves and something can go wrong with any one of these tissues. My goal is to find the root cause of the issue using a variety of assessment tools, and treating the problem till the symptoms resolve. I believe in giving the responsibility of health back to the patient by educating them on what is happening to their body and how to help avoid re-injury. My holistic approach to treatment helps bring the body back into balance, allowing the many muscles, bones and nerves to work better together to keep you functioning your best.
