Sophisticated Diagnosis

Physical rehabilitation begins with a comprehensive examination which goes beyond standard orthopedic and neurological testing.

“Patients have a tendency to fudge a little while doing their exercises. This is normal and expected, especially when recovering from an injury. It is my experience that one-on-one supervision is the only way to assure that patients fully recover.”
