Orthopedics: persons with persistent neuromusculoskeletal pain and disability from injuries related to the spine and extremities, deconditioning, sports injuries, arthritic and other degenerative changes as well as post-operative patients.


• Manual interventions to reduce pain based on current outcomes research and basic neuroscience, including advanced soft tissue and joint mobilization techniques
• Movement/exercise therapies from an evidence-based perspective aimed at improving movement efficiency and quality, and then progressing to re-conditioning based on sound, science-based strength and conditioning principles
• Incorporation of a holistic approach to care of each individual that accounts for the full complexity of the pain experience- instead of “no pain, no gain” we emphasize “know pain, know gain”
• Strong emphasis on patient self-empowerment and personal accountability- we will work with you, not on you
• Utilization of valid and reliable diagnostic clinical tests and outcomes tools
