Personal Bio

Treatment Philosophy

I treat spine and musculoskeletal pain and have a special interest in neurologic rehabilitation for conditions including Parkinson's Disease and Stroke. I can help optimize a rehabilitation plan for patients with functional impairments and disabilities. I embrace a holistic treatment paradigm and utilize medications, injections, exercise, lifestyle and self-care strategies. I value the importance of mind-body interaction in the patient's therapeutic response. I also appreciate the potential limitations of non-surgical approaches and will refer to surgery when needed.
