courses. He is dedicated to guiding patients to achieve their individualized level of peak
performance regardless of diagnosis, ability, symptoms, or current limitations. If you want to see
what you are truly capable of, come get conditioned and trained with the experts.
Treatment Philosophy:
My belief is that you need to be doing the most targeted program you can. You need a strong
plan of how to go from where you are today to where you want to go tomorrow. I will find the
source of the problem, not just the symptoms. Using manual therapy with specific exercises.
Then encourage health maintenance through healthy movement patterns, and activity/sport
specific training to get you back to your activity and perform at a higher level than you did before
the injury. At the end of the day it is about you, and helping you to live a healthier and better life.
