I think physical therapy is fascinating because there are so many different techniques that can be used to reach a beneficial outcome. I want to provide the best care possible to patients while making the rehabilitation process enjoyable. I use a hands-on approach with all my patients, because I firmly believe that patients heal more efficiently when a therapist combines manual techniques with exercise and other modalities. I also pride myself on providing highly personalized care to every patient.
