Practices In: Bolingbrook
Patients Seen: All Ages

I strive to pro­vide indi­vid­u­al­ized phys­i­cal ther­a­py inter­ven­tions to achieve patient goals accord­ing to their val­ues and expec­ta­tions. Draw­ing on an eclec­tic 35 years of clin­i­cal expe­ri­ence, along with cur­rent best evi­dence, ther­a­py ses­sions are tai­lored to reduce pain and max­i­mize phys­i­cal func­tion. I have recent­ly added cer­ti­fi­ca­tions in dry needling and man­u­al ther­a­py to my prac­tice. Both have had great impact on decreas­ing pain and improv­ing mus­cle per­for­mance. My treat­ment goal is to have impact with each and every ses­sion and to pro­vide edu­ca­tion in self man­age­ment strate­gies to opti­mize ther­a­py gains and pre­vent recurrence.
