Our journey together will start with me asking you the most important question for your recovery and rehabilitation:
"What is important to you? What is your WHY?"
Each client or patient has a reason why they are looking for help. The pain doesn't have to be debilitating; annoying pain is enough to affect your daily tasks, function, and quality of life. Maybe you are a weekend warrior and can not compete in your adventure race or sporting event because of nagging knee or ankle pain. Or maybe you want to be able to garden with less back pain or pick up your grandchildren when they run to you for a hug. Or maybe pain isn't a factor and you want to lose weight, get in better shape, or improve your fitness.
Whatever your "WHY" is: I have seen it before and have good outcomes with my patients and CLIENTS.
My evaluative process is systems based and acts as an funnel to help identify the root cause of your symptoms and movement dysfunctions. When we identify the root cause of your pain, we will not only be able to solve your concerns in the short-term, but in the long-term as well.
I subscribe to the philosophy that physical therapy is a medical profession that embraces a multitude of treatment methods with the goal of improving the individual patient’s symptoms and movement quality. I am very innovative in the approach I take and look to find what works best for the patient. I utilize evidence and experience guided techniques to help improve your movement as quickly and efficiently as possible.
My treatment style is very hands-on. I believe that that patient benefits most from physical therapy when both the therapist and the patient are active participants in the treatment process.
Our goal is not to keep you coming to sessions forever. I aim to provide my patients with the tools to self-manage their symptoms long-term.
Whatever your “why” is, I want to get you back to enjoying the activities in your life that bring you joy, laughter, and happiness. Together, we can do this!
