Hand Therapy, Physical & Occupational Therapy

Practices In: Plainfield
Patients Seen: Adolescents and Adults

Every joint, mus­cle and lig­a­ment has a per­son and soul attached to it. I approach all indi­vid­u­als in a holis­tic man­ner; in order to treat the body, you must treat the mind. I love help­ing indi­vid­u­als get back to the activ­i­ties that they love to do through evi­dence based research and am ded­i­cat­ed to doing every­thing I can to help those who need help the most.

Clinical Interests

I am cer­ti­fied in ortho­pe­dic man­u­al ther­a­py that allows me to move and adjust your mus­cu­loskele­tal sys­tem to increase range of motion, strength and endurance. As an occu­pa­tion­al ther­a­pist, I also eval­u­ate and treat acquired brain injuries, post-sur­gi­cal con­di­tions, arm/​hand weak­ness and arm/​hand pain.

Personal Interests
