I incor­po­rate the best prac­tices in mus­cu­loskele­tal care in a mul­ti­dis­ci­pli­nary prac­tice to empow­er patients to reclaim their func­tion and improve their health. In my prac­tice, I val­ue the process of lis­ten­ing to the patient and under­stand­ing the whole per­son before for­mu­lat­ing a treat­ment plan that achieves pos­i­tive results for the patient.
