Traditional osteopathy with advanced rehabilitation techniques to addressunderlying causes of imbalance and disease


Osteopathic physicians, like MDs, complete the same rigorous medical training and complete the same multi-year residency programs before being fully licensed to practice. In addition, a select group of DOs use hands-onmedicine, continuing to study and advance in the specialty of osteopathic manual medicine.

Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation integrates with Osteopathy to evaluate and treat the physical body objectively addressing specific imbalances in posture and movement to restore function.

The goal of any medical treatment is to offer your body resources, whether that be manipulation with myhands, a prescription drug, or surgery. The resources I offer work with, and bolster, the natural forces within your own bodyto find health. I am mindful of the vital importance of addressing subtle abnormalities that have large effect on overall. Many patients experiencechanges after the first appointmentwhile others, especially those with chronic long-term issues, may require multiple visits.

If you are looking for a physician to partner with who will help you to navigate the whole picture of health, I invite you to schedule an appointment here.


To find healthshould be the object of the doctor.
Anyone can find disease.

-A.T. Still (founder of osteopathic medicine)

What is Osteopathy?

Osteopathy works byfindingand working with the health in each patient no matter howserioustheir illness.If there is life, somewhere in thesystem there is health. The three core principles of osteopathy are:

  1. The body is one indivisible unit.

  2. The body’s structure and function are interrelated.

  3. The body’s natural desire is to go towards health, to self-heal, and to self-regulateif given adequateresources.



What is Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization (DNS)?

DNS is an advanced rehabilitation tool to evaluated and treat the coordination of the body. It takes into account developmental abnormalities, past injuries, and dysfunctional movement patterns to find opportunities to improve balance, posture, and movement. The three foundational elements of DNS are:

  1. Re-training a neutral spine.

  2. Coordinating limb motion with core stability.

  3. Integrating stability and mobility of the limbs for graceful movement.
