Treatment/Training Philosophy:

It is important to find the primary source of the dysfunction to be able to appropriately address the presenting symptom or pain. My main role is to help my clients understand the source of their discomfort and help them identify the compensatory patterns they employ so that they can develop awareness of their bodies and how it moves. As a result, this will allow the client to learn how to move in a pain-free manner and help them regain their functional mobility.
