Special Area of Interest…
“Orthopedics is what I’ve done the most work in, and I’d say that shoulders and necks are my specialty area. I have taken one class in a series, Strain/Counterstrain, with the Jones Institute. It’s a muscle relaxation technique. I nd that technique really eective, and I use it a lot.”
Philosophy of Patient Care…
“I place a lot of importance on listening to the patients and using what they’re telling me to help them feel better. I also like to give them tools they can use to take care of themselves once they’re done with the physical therapy program. I’m always happy when my patients are feeling good.”
