“I started my practice because I love seeing results. I love seeing my patients improve, feel better, achieve progress and sustain their improvements. I do believe in treatments like Physical Therapy, Chiropractic Care, Acupuncture, Personal Training, Yoga and Pilates. I encourage my patients to try multiple ways to improve. I take great pride in my work and if I feel that I am not helping you I will always be honest and tell you. I completely appreciate that my patients time, energy and money are a significant investment and I understand they expect a return on that investment.
In orthopedic care there are injury related cases and chronic cases. Often times chronic cases like lower back pain, it is thought you have two choices : take NSAIDs and live with it, or have surgery. In many chronic cases there is a third choice – medical massage. With medical massage treating the muscles and muscle groups can help your body to re-learn lost range of motion, lost mobility, and some cases turn chronic issues into past issues. Sometimes the relief from chronic situations isn’t complete but it’s substantial enough to provide a better quality of life, and avoid surgery.
This is what I call a New Paradigm in Orthopedic Care. The definition of Paradigm is : “a framework containing the basic assumptions, ways of thinking and methodology that are commonly accepted by members of a scientific community.” This New Paradigm or New Standard I believe grants patients a third choice that falls in between “ just living with it” and surgery.”
