Developing  Movement Across the Lifespan: Be Pliable, Be Enduring, Be Resistant,  Be Efficient and Be Skillfull.  



Philosophy and Background

One patient is scheduled for one hour with care provided by a Board Certified physiotherapist. This allows ample time for direct, individualized treatment including soft tissue mobilization, joint mobilization, corrective exercise, neuromuscular re-education, motor control training and patient education. We contend optimal care is achieved when the treating clinician and the patient determine the course of care not the insurance provider. We are not an in network provider, but we will submit routine claims if your insurance has out of network benefits. We are independently owned and operated with no corporate affiliations; plus we have roots and ties to the surrounding communities.  



John has over 25 years experience  in the management of pain and movement dysfunctions. Through the use of a thorough systems review and a comprehensive physical examination he has been able to deliver the highest quality of care in a consistent fashion across the spectrum of acute, sub-acute and chronic spinal, upper quarter and  lower quarter musculoskeletal conditions. Over 40,000 clinical treatment hours have been devoted to the care of patients presenting with, but not limited to: cranio-facial disorders, status post surgical arthroplasty and arthroscopy procedures, nerve compression syndromes, soft tissue strain and sprain injuries, balance disorders, gait abnormalities, occupational injuries, motor vehicle accident injuries, as well as sports injuries.
