Philosophy –

Common to all industries, innovative ideas often start at the point of application.  By attending to sports injuries,  I can adapt some remarkable forms of treatment to patients whose conditions were not created by sports.  My experience in understanding the mechanism of injury plus current therapies allows the patient who has suffered an automobile accident, lifting injury, recurring lower back pain or headaches their best chance to return to normal as soon as possible.  This is important, because regaining a full, active life is as critical to you as returning to play is to the athlete.

Our goal is to identify your condition and apply the best known, most conservative methods to produce a rapid and complete recovery.  If your condition is not something best treated by chiropractic, you will be referred to a specialist who is better able to help you with the same objective.
