Philosophy of Care

I enjoy the overall process of recovery for the patient from the first day to their graduation day. A specific area that I also enjoy is working with patients that present with dizziness, balance disorders, and vertigo. I am able to treat a variety of patients through a comprehensive strategy of function-based therapist exercises and manual techniques. In this way I strive to educate my patients on the nature of their injury so they can be an active participant in their recovery. This will help the patient to become more independent in the future when therapy is complete.
