He focuses on analyzing movement patterns and recognizing movement impairments to guide his treatment. He treats primarily through the use of manual based therapy to restore ROM, creating individualized exercise programs to match the patient’s specific needs, and returning each patient to his or her desired activity level while condoning further implementation of wellness habits.
