Is physical therapy right for you?
The field of physical therapy has evolved significantly over time. I take great efforts to stay informed of current research and advances in my field, but I also know true health and wellness is more than physical. Fortunately, physical therapy encompasses the holistic concept of mind-body health and wellness. I always try to consider the multifactorial aspects associated with injury, recovery, and performance, offering a comprehensive approach to patient care.
I don’t accept insurance (except Medicare). This allows me to work with you as a whole person – and not just your body parts. Below are common conditions that I treat, but conditions that could benefit from physical therapy are many.
If you have any questions about whether your condition could improve with my help, let’s talk. If physical therapy is not appropriate, I’d be happy to guide you in the right direction.
Commonly treated conditions
- Back/neck pain
- Sports injuries
- Pre-surgical planning (Pre-hab)
- Post surgery
- Overuse injuries
- Joint pain
- Balance disorders/ BPPV
- TMJ dysfunction/ headaches
Dry Needling is an invasive procedure in which a solid filament needle is inserted into the skin and muscle directly at a myofascial trigger point. The benefits of this modality include increased circulation, increased venous and lymphatic drainage, reduced pain, and/or improved muscle contractility or relaxation.
Myofascial Decompression or Cupping effectively pulls blood through muscle, releases fascial adhesions, increases tissue mobility, and improves muscle function.
