Joint pain

Created with Sketch.

New injury? Chronic aching? Weakness? Something "just not quite right?" However it may have got there, let's get rid of it. A detailed movement analysis and mechanical evaluation and diagnosis will pin point the area (often, there are multiples) needing attention. Together we will determine the best course of treatment consisting of manual therapy, guided exercise, and a detailed independent exercise program with personalized access to an interactive app. 
It's not your job to know exactly what is wrong, sometimes it just hurts! Conditions we treat include but are not limited to shoulder, elbow, hip, knee, ankle joint injury or pain, unique conditions like plantar fasciitis, posterior tibialis tendon dysfunction, chronic ankle instability, shin splints, patellofemoral joint disorders, meniscus or ligament tears of the knee (ACL, PCL, MCL, LCL), hip impingement and bursitis, hip/knee imbalances, IT band syndrome, frozen shoulder, shoulder impingement, rotator cuff strain or tear, ACJ/SCJ sprains, golfer/tennis elbow, and more!

neck and back pain

It is literally a pain in the neck, and you don't even know how it got there.  Maybe picking up that light weight object like you've done a hundred times was the straw that "broke" your back. Doing nothing hurts, but doing something feels fine. Does any of that sound familiar? Your symptom behavior may be strange to you, but often times the pattern of pain tells me exactly how to treat you. The spine is complicated, but that doesn't mean it's helpless. My two specialty certifications enable me to find the root cause of your pain and identify why it keeps happening. Then manual therapy, guided exercise, and a detailed independent exercise program with personalized access to an interactive app will be our answer to stop the vicious cycle or recurring pain or be sure that cycle never even begins. 
Neck and back conditions we treat include but are not limited to whiplash syndrome, "text neck" (yes, that is a thing), stiffness or a "crick" in the neck, pain radiating from the neck to the upper extremities, cervical radiculopathy, generalized neck, upper or lower back pain back tightness or stiffness, sacroiliac (SI joint) disorders, radiating pain from the back down the lower extremities, sciatica, lumbar and lumbosacral radiculopathy, and more!

Pediatrics

Does your baby have difficulty rotating his/her head one way or the other? Are you beginning to notice flattness on one area of their head? Are they falling behind on developmental skills compared to same aged peers? Are we walking but only on the tip toes? Early intervention is key to identifying and properly treating issues like these. Talk with your pediatrician and let him/her know your concerns, then let's get them taken care of! 
I will come to you and your baby. Home, day care, baby sitters house, a park... you name it! Addressing your concerns for your child in their normal environment will enable us both to identify and treat what they need the most. 
Conditions include but are not limited to torticollis, plagiocephaly, gross motor delay, toe walking, frequent falling, scoliosis, and most pediatric orthopedic conditions!

Surgical prep or recovery

Improving your joint mobility and strength prior to an operation is one of the greatest factors contributing to a quicker and easier recovery after surgery. Having an established relationship with local and remote surgeons has enabled me to treat their patients exactly as they need to be treated to recover from their particular operation. My board certification in orthopedics has equipped me with a high level of understanding of the musculoskeletal system anatomy and mechanics. 
Pre-hab: a program designed to not worsen your pain before an operation, but improve your mobility and strength as best as possible to set you up for success! This is often done with a detailed home exercise program or just a few visits. 
Re-hab: the area of wellness for which most people seek physical therapy. Minor to major procedures, skilled one-on-one physical therapy provided in your location of choice can ensure you efficient use of your time and resources to obtain the quickest recovery possible. 

Weakness, dizziness and vertigo

Whether your area of weakness is in one particular movement or has taken over your entire body and lifestyle, our individualized one-on-one sessions with a Doctor of Physical Therapy will identify your unique needs and focus on your quick return to the things you love. I can guarantee you will not be thrown into a group to do 10 reps and 3 sets of the same generalized exercise program every single day. That is not how we get better. Your time will be spent effectively and you will be given a very detailed, specific exercise program to do independently to ensure the quickest progress. 
Vertigo and dizziness can be debilitating. New onset or chronic symptoms, physical therapy may be the key to stop the spinning or feeling of floating. Return to your life without fear of falling or having to sit out.
