Manual therapy is a broad description of how a physical therapist may use their hands to physically work on your body. It extends far beyond simple massage techniques and is typically very specific and individualized in nature. Examples of manual therapy techniques include but are not limited to: joint mobilization, joint manipulation, neural gliding, tool assisted soft tissue work, muscle energy techniques, manual lymph drainage, trigger point therapy, myofascial release, and beyond. I believe that every physical therapist should be hands on, and I am very passionate about the amazing benefits of manual therapy.

In the spring of 2016 I will begin the NAIOMT Clinical Fellowship Program. I am committed to being a lifelong learner, and committed to providing my patients with the best care I can possibly provide. For more information on my quest see below:
