Philosophy of care
Evaluate the musculoskeletal system using knowledge and background in anatomy of muscles/nerves/joints along with how the body moves. Diagnostic testing is reviewed and additional tests can be ordered to identify areas that are not functioning. Finally, a broad range of treatment options can be used to address deficits allowing return of function. These treatments may include medications, injections, therapy, complimentary/alternative medicine and working with a team of health care professionals to obtain the best outcome for my patients.
