“Being a physical therapist allows me the opportunity to spend quality time with each patient to better understand their personal goals and how best to achieve them. I enjoy problem-solving innovative ways to address their unique pathology and movement dysfunction through an individualized treatment plan. I aim to provide valuable, high-quality patient care by incorporating manual therapy, ongoing biomechanical assessment and implementing movement-based therapy to address functional limitations and promote a full return to a pain-free lifestyle.”
