“I like to treat each person as an individual by listening to what drives them, what factors may have impacted recovery in the past, and what I can do in order to help them reach their goals. I strongly advocate for my patients to take control of their ailments, working hard both at home and in the clinic to optimize recovery. I use a functional approach to find the origin of dysfunction and reduce chances of re-injury.“
