Find the source
Addressing the source of your pain as opposed to just treating the painful structures requires a certain understanding as to how your whole body moves and how that impacts the regions of your body. That is my expertise.
I remind my patients that “the victim screams the loudest BUT the source of your pain can be far away.” My goal is to assess you as a whole person and determine how I can help you heal.
Get moving again
After I have found the true source of your pain through an integrated total body evaluation, I will design a treatment program for you pulling from my vast knowledge and experience, which include but are not limited to:

Hands on techniques that are used by physical therapists to restore movement to a joint, muscle or nerve. It can include soft tissue release, joint/neural mobilization or neuromuscular reeducation.
Mobility of human organs (viscera) is essential to our health. Through their connections to the musculoskeletal system, they can be a factor in injury, causing pain and dysfunction. These techniques are developed by osteopath, Jean-Pierre Barral.
Movement/ Corrective Exercise
Re-training your brain is the key to overcoming a poor postural strategy. Integrating awareness and mindfulness with exercise is vital to achieving this goal. This will help reinforce optimal motor patterns so as to avoid a breakdown in the kinetic chain.
Athletes compensate easily when it comes to persevering in their sport despite an injury. It is these compensations that lead to injury and poor results. Restoring optimal movement through a sports specific assessment is often the missing link to optimal performance.
Achieve your goals
Whether it’s to perform in a triathlon, walk down the block without pain, help you feel whole again after you just gave birth, get through 18 holes of golf pain free, sit through your work day with ease, or make those 3 point shots on a basketball court. Your goal is my goal.
Prevent further injuries
They say an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. And that cannot be more true when it comes to your body. Why is it that we are always reacting to an injury instead of preventing it???
Don’t you want to continue to perform at your best level without interruption due to an injury which may have been prevented?
Do you ever start a running program, a new sport, train for a marathon, change jobs and have to sit or stand more only to be ambushed mid way because of an injury? I know I have!
