Our Philosophy

Correct the cause of your pain. If you are a runner, we must take into account your gait, an ice skater, your core and ankle stability, a volleyball player, your ability to absorb the pressure of high velocity jumping, a horseback rider, the strength in your adductors and how they balance with their opposing muscles. We begin by understanding what you do.
