MISSION With ten years of experience working in a rehabilitative setting as a physical therapist assistant, I have come to terms that our healthcare system is limited in just how much we can help our patients. I see patients struggle daily with what I see to be much more than low back pain, neck pain, or knee pain. Additionally, people pay large sums of money monthly for these benefits, that a lot of times are not benefiting their actual individual health.
Over the years I have taken a stronger interest in restoring human movement via human movement. There is benefit in manual therapy, however more often than not there is nothing more powerful than us moving our own bodies. It is certainly more empowering to an individual to see themselves move in new ways without pain, than for someone else to do the work for them.
I strive to find new movement for each person based on their current state. I want to empower each of you to feel confident in motion that feel good, to integrate and restore breath work into your core stability, to educate you on the power of your feet, and to unlock joints that have stopped serving you over the years.
FYI While this website is intended to help address your injuries and instabilities, it is not a Physical Therapy assessment or treatment. As we tell our patients each day, everyone is different and everyone presents a little different from the next, regardless of diagnosis. These exercises are only the beginning of your treatment. Think of them as a foundation towards recovery. If your pain continues, see your doctor or schedule an evaluation with your local Physical Therapist. If your pain worsens with any of these exercises, discontinue immediately.
There are diagnoses not included on this site but have similar treatment plans to diagnoses already listed. Please contact me if you do not see your specific injury and I will point you in the right direction.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding your diagnosis, symptoms, or treatment plan, please contact me. I am here to help!
