Personal Philosophy

"My goal is to assist patients in their efforts to return their bodies to normal function.

As a chiropractor, it is my role to reestablish proper nervous system function by altering the body's biomechanics. Abnormal biomechanical conditions, also known as 'subluxations', are treated with spinal manipulative therapy ('adjustments'), supplemented by adjunctive modalities, therapeutic stretches and exercises, as well as counseling in how to modify daily activities.

My objective is to help patients understand their original problem and, in doing so, minimize future injuries."

Treatment Philosophy

Restore proper body biomechanics in the muscle, joint, and nervous systems (eliminate "subluxations") by performing spinal manipulative therapy (SMT)
Encourage a healthy lifestyle
Restore optimum health
