“While the human body has the innate ability to heal itself, each patient’s healing journey is unique. It is my job as a physical therapist to discover, initiate, and facilitate each patient’s recovery to achieve optimal results. I listen to my patients, then apply my knowledge and hands on expertise to guide them in the right direction, then accelerate them down their healing pathway to the desired destination.”
