As a child I lived with a disabled family member and had sports and other injuries throughout the years. Each recovery ended up being learning experience that I use to make me a better therapist. I have found the best way to help is through education. It is very important for a therapist to really listen to their patients and treat their whole body, not just their current injury. I strive to help patients recover but also to help them understand their injury, how posture and body mechanics effect their symptoms, the use of appropriate exercises to improve their body, and how to prevent re-injury. The best reward is patients tell me how much they have improved by using the skills they learned during therapy.

Patients need to learn how to strengthen their core, breathe correctly and properly move their bodies throughout the day. I try to teach my patients exercises that can be performed with little or no equipment, so they can do the exercises throughout the day no matter where they are.
