I take most sat­is­fac­tion in con­tribut­ing to and wit­ness­ing the progress of my patients dur­ing their phys­i­cal reha­bil­i­ta­tion. I work one-on-one with my patients to over­come mus­cu­loskele­tal set­backs. With neu­ro­log­i­cal­ly impaired patients, I strive to max­i­mize inde­pen­dence. Whether the final goal is to walk inde­pen­dent­ly, return to work, or par­tic­i­pate in sports — opti­miz­ing func­tion takes ded­i­ca­tion and hard work. Edu­cat­ing my patients on their con­di­tion and explain­ing the thought process behind treat­ment strate­gies plays a crit­i­cal role in improv­ing results dur­ing and after pro­gram completion.
