Philosophy of Care
My primary objective is restoring form and function, whether you have a nagging injury preventing work and exercise, or you're a competitive athlete with a sidelining injury. The key component to achieving this objective is listening to you, because you know your own body best! As a team, you and I will develop treatment plans that incorporate your individual goals and objectives.
While well-trained in the most modern biologic and surgical treatments, I also incorporate a multifaceted approach including nutrition and exercise optimization. I promise to exhaust all non-surgical options before considering surgery as part of your treatment plan.
