I consider myself a manual therapist. Most of our time together will be hands-on treatment. Through touch, I can assess your body's condition and provide treatment to facilitate, returning your body closer to it's natural true home state, where functioning is easier and more pain-free. Stress, repetitive movements, injuries and the body's own protection reactions can lead to inefficient and painful movement patterns. Regardless of any disease, the body may preform at a less than optimal level, and although I cannot directly affect the disease process, I can very often make your functioning easier and more pain-free. With these increases, your quality of life improves.
I offer each of my patients an in-depth evaluation, which we will use to develop your treatment plan and your home exercise program, for you to invest in yourself, too. Combined with my personal hands-on treatment, we will be able to measure your weekly progression towards The Real You. I also will continually educate you on your body and what we are doing. You will learn to help yourself and take an active role in determining the course of your treatment. And to be able to use these tools, in the future, to hold off return of severe symptoms.
You will make changes each and every week. Within my one hour treatment sessions, I work with the current you to progress and to continually redevelop your treatment program and your Home Exercise Program (HEP) to incorporate the most effective way for you to use your valuable time, so that you invest yourself with productive and efficient techniques, which will progress you to a new level, and that we can analyze and advance at our next treatment session.
