I see patients in their home and work environment, rather than in a clinic, in order to accurately evaluate their movement habits. These habits are the contributor and often the source of most chronic back pain. The habits can be best addressed where the individual spends their time.

After evaluation of habits, furniture design, and exercise regimen, I teach patients the skills of trunk coordination and stabilization that they can apply to all activity. I then design a personalized exercise and posture training program to incorporate the basics of back health into their daily activities.  The goals are always the individual's goals of regaining an active lifestyle including activities they enjoy the most.
