It’s important to help patients help themselves. It’s why I partner with patients to both treat and teach. I believe we can do so much more to help ourselves feel better if we understand how the body works and how it responds to treatments and exercise. My focus is on improving how the body functions through direct treatment of the areas that cause pain and disability.
I spent my early years training and competing in the sport of weightlifting, representing the USA and participating in Olympic trials. I chose this field as my specialty because it allows me to directly help and teach patients how to improve their health and maximize their abilities. I use my experience in the field of fitness to help patients improve their lives. Exercise, rest, nutrition and attitude can do the most good toward long-term improvement. And there is no age that is “too old” to improve how we feel.
