WORKSITE therapy: The convenience of therapy at your location. I have the equipment and expertise to make this possible. My goal is to enable the injured worker to return to work and leisure, fast. I also do work conditioning on-site, in the live work environment. If the goal is to return to work, the therapy must be geared toward that. On-site therapy is the answer.

Physical therapy management of all types of musculoskeletal conditions including low back pain, shoulder, and knee pain. Post-operative rotator cuff repairs, spinal or knee surgeries are especially interesting to me.
I have had the unique privilege of working with large and small employers over several years on pre-placement testing, performance testing, stretching programs and work injury care.
What is a typical physical therapy session like?
Well, it depends on what the problem is. Therefore, I start will a detailed examination, a mechanical assessment of movement and symptom behavior. This helps me formulate a hypothesis as to what the issue could be. Further testing and movement will reveal what treatment is likely to produce the best results. Yes there will be stretching, strengthening and stabilization exercises. Yes I do have portable electrical stimulation, and ultrasound units. Yes, I do have weights, cuffs, dumbbells and exercise bands. I've got this...trust me :)
