Patient Care Philosophy
Having played collegiate basketball and being an avid athlete myself, I have a passion for treating all types of athletes. My clinical experience has been focused on orthopedics, which encompasses every joint and musculoskeletal injury under the sun. I am an avid believer that all exercises should be functional so that people can effectively return to the sport or activity of their choice, with a decreased chance of re-injury. I have extensive background treating the spine, but my favorite joints to treat are both the Knee and the Hip.
