My Areas of Practice

I enjoy the interactions with patients which occur on a daily basis and believe patient education is by far the most important part of my job.  I am a strong advocate for the implementation of the principles of evidence informed medicine into physical therapist practice.  With this in mind my practice revolves around combining the best available evidence with patient expectations/preferences and my clinical experience to offer the patient the best possible outcome.  Often, this includes manual therapy interventions reinforced with exercise and education with the goal of decreasing pain and restoring function.
