Personalized Treatment Plan: The First Step to Your Recovery

Our first goal is to reduce the symptoms you’re feeling right now as quickly as possible. We assess and develop a personalized treatment program through means including, but not limited to, advanced exercise prescriptions, manual therapy, and various modalities.

Evaluating Your Condition

To come up with your treatment program, a therapist will gather key information about your condition. Your answers along with the results of an expert examination will guide us in creating a specific type of treatment program to effectively address your specific condition and eventually, to facilitate your healing.

Adjustments to the program are implemented based on your actual progress, or response, to the treatment until your goals are achieved. We pay close attention to your progress. You will receive verbal instruction and hands-on guidance to improve your condition.

Prevention Strategies:

Understanding Your Condition and Implementing Prevention Strategies

A clear understanding of your condition will not only alleviate your concerns, but can also help you understand your condition, to look for and change factors that may be causing your symptoms, and to help you learn how to avoid future problems.

Our therapists may provide tips, specific stretches, and exercises to do at work, or during activities. We recommend changes to help you do your job with less strain and less chance of injury.

As you recover, you will gradually advance in a series of strengthening exercises for the muscles surrounding the affected area which helps patients begin moving easier and lessens the chances of future pain and problems.

How Long It Takes:

Quick Treatments to Let You Work on Your Other Responsibilities

Our goal is to relieve pain and correct your injury as quickly as possible, without compromising the quality of treatments you will be receiving. We adjust our therapy programs to meet your goals.

We get you in for treatment quickly, usually within a few days, and work hard to get you back to enjoying life as quickly as possible. In fact, in some cases just a few 30-minute therapy sessions is all it takes.

We Help You Get Well & Stay Well.

I believe strongly in empowering people. I aim to help every patient get over a current episode of pain, and also arm each person with the knowledge and exercises to keep their body strong, efficient and moving in a way that can prevent problems in the future. I am always interested in learning more, and I love to teach. I have taken some very interesting courses that have broadened my understanding and thinking.
