Treatment philosophy: “Developing a clear understanding of the body’s underlying biomechanics is essential to treat the root causes of a person’s problem, versus only treating the symptoms. I strive to create a collaborative partnership with my patients, tailoring my approach to meet their individual needs and goals. With proper hands-on care, education and prescriptive exercise, you can achieve amazing improvements in function and wellbeing.”
