Your first appointment will be 1 hour long and will include a thorough evaluation process with the goal of determining what is causing your pain. With this information we can appropriately dose exercise for tissue healing. I then look at functional movements patterns, coordination, strength, flexibility, joint mobility, myofascial restrictions, posture etc. to establish a list of contributing factors to target during treatment.
All follow up appointments will be from 45 min - 1 hour and treatments are one on one.

Manual therapy is a hands on technique that is used to decrease abnormal muscle tone, myofascial restrictions, improve joint mobility, and inhibit pain.
Examples of manual therapy that I use are soft tissue work, cupping, myofascial release, joint mobilization, manipulation, and passive stretching.
With a strong background in histology, specifically dosed exercise is used to address tissue healing, mobility, blood flow, coordination, recruitment, endurance, strength, and power. I follow the Scientific Therapeutic Exercise Progression model to appropriately dose, design, and progress treatment with patient's goals in mind.
Patients should expect to spend about 30 minutes a day on therapeutic exercise. Average treatment is 4-6 weeks, but can vary greatly depending on prior level of function and goals.
