By teaching our patients how to "listen" for these vital clues, and then how to respond, not only can we dramatically reduce recovery times in many cases, but also reduce chances of re-injury.
These principles hold true across the health spectrum, from systemic disease to sports injury, and we have incorporated them into our treatment protocols.
As a lifelong athlete myself I have had my share of injury, and I have used the same rehab and therapy techniques to treat myself -- from a herniated lumbar disc to a rotator cuff tear to a patellar tendon injury.
As a sports medicine and rehab specialist, my goal is to equip each of our patients with the tools they need to acquire and sustain health "simply", and reduce their need for specialists like me. In this way we seek to empower our patients, add to their pleasure of life and allow them to truly thrive.
