Biography & Education

Biography
My goal is to help individuals improve their quality of life by helping them regain function and decrease pain through non-surgical management of spine and musculoskeletal disorders. My practice focuses on optimizing exercise and physical therapy, spinal and joint injections, and medication management as well as electrodiagnostic medicine to diagnose and treat painful and debilitating conditions of muscles, joints, and nerves. Whether the patient wants to get back into sports or exercise--or just wants to be able to take a walk or make a meal with less discomfort, I will work with them to develop a treatment plan to help them reach those goals.
