“My goal is to help my patients stay as active as possible at any age! As an osteopathic physiatrist, I believe that structure and function are interrelated. Our bodies are constantly working to maintain balance, however at times they may need assistance due to an acute or chronic injury that never adequately healed.

I use my musculoskeletal knowledge and osteopathic skills to diagnose and provide effective individualized treatment programs that include appropriate medications, manual manipulation, physical therapy, and/or interventional procedures in order to restore and improve my patient’s function and maximize their quality of life.”
