Philosophy:
For a patient to have success in Physical Therapy, I believe it demands encouragement and education not only on the part of the therapist but also the support staff as well. It is crucial to work as a team which includes the patient. Physical Therapy benefits patients in all facets of their physical health by improving movement, strength, postural awareness, balance, overall functional ability and therefore quality of life.
Why The Doctors Clinic:
The Doctors Clinic Mission is "Excellence in Patient Care." As a customer and employee of The Doctors Clinic I have experienced the sincere commitment that The Doctors Clinic has to their mission. I am excited to be a part of The Doctors Clinic ancillary services to support the medical care healing of their clients.
Joined The Doctors Clinic:
2010
Medical Interests:
In my 27 years as a Physical Therapist, I have been fortunate enough to have worked in a variety of rehabilitation and clinical settings. From Inpatient Rehabilitation to Balance Disorders, I have been involved with a wide variety of therapy settings and gained experience and insight from each. After years of working in physical therapy I have found a new sense of enthusiasm by using the McKenzie Method of Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy (MDT). The MDT approach emphasizes diagnosis of physical pain and treatment that is based on movement and position, patient education, self-exercise and training people to independently manage their condition. Using the MDT approach for those who are referred to me has proven to be the most effective physical therapy approach to caring for pain that responds to movement and position in the spine and extremities.
