Physical Therapy Conditions Treated

It is difficult to make a complete list of all of the "specific" diagnostic conditions that I can treat. I can deal with any specific diagnostic label that may be given to almost any body part from your head down to your toes.

I frequently tell my patients, when they come to me with a very specific diagnostic label, that my job is to treat the soft tissue, joint and nervous system dysfunctions that they bring me. I do not treat the "diagnosis" that they bring me. An example would be the patient who comes in with a supposed "rotator cuff tendonitis." Many times, the patient may be feeling pain in the shoulder, but the cause of the symptoms is really an issue with the cervical spine. I DO NOT TREAT YOUR SYMPTOMS. I TREAT THE UNDERLYING DYSFUNCTION. It is my job to do a thorough evaluation of your muscles, joints and nervous system in order to better determine the source of your symptoms. You bring me your symptoms, and I will do my best to identify the underlying dysfunctions that are most likely causing your symptoms.
