Patient Care Philosophy
At Advanced Manual Therapy and Sports Rehabilitation, we utilize physical therapy to treat outpatient orthopedic, musculoskeletal, and neuromuscular injuries and disorders.
I enjoy treating sports injuries as a result of everything from football and soccer to more obscure sports like curling and CrossFit. When working with patients I thrive on the challenge of bridging the gap between injury and competitive participation. I am particularly interested in using exercise as a means to help prevent injury as well as treat injury.
