“The only way to do great work, is to love what you do”
– Steve Jobs
I own the company and specialize in orthopedics and orthopedic manual therapy. I also work as an instructor for Maitland Australian Physiotherapy Seminars. We teach physical therapists the Maitland Concept, a pillar of orthopedic manual therapy. Many patients need to learn how to tap into their ability to commit to the healing process. This involves helping them to work through pain at times and practice gratitude.
I particularly enjoy treating neck and low back herniated discs and pinched nerves, post-surgical fusions, sciatica Shoulder rotator cuff tears, labral tears, bursitis, arthritis, post-op surgical Hip arthritis, replacement, femoral acetabular impingement, trochanteric bursitis Knee ACL tear/reconstruction, meniscal tears, arthritis, and patellofemoral syndrome.
I love working here because of the atmosphere of community and camaraderie. This allows for a nurturing and healing environment that is encouraging and empathetic.
