Injuries are rarely the result of an isolated incident. Usually they happen
because of bad habits in the way we move our bodies.

tissue damage, making your body more susceptible to injury.
why movement analysis is a vital part of my physical therapy evaluation.
It helps me uncover the reasons for your pain. It identifies areas of
your body that are being stressed too much by habitual incorrect movements.
This is particularly important before you begin a yoga or fitness program.
The evaluation has other components, too:
Muscle length and strength tests
Orthopedic tests, as needed
Neurological tests, as needed
Analysis of breathing patterns
self-assessment of stress levels, Ayurvedic body type, and overall

Mean for You?
My multi-layered evaluation gives me a more complete picture of your situation
-- what's causing your pain and how it affects you. With this information,
I design an individualized program of movements to help relieve your pain.
As you become more aware of how to use your body in healthier ways, you
learn to avoid injuries in the future.
Your program includes breathing and relaxation techniques to assist in
reducing stress. This combination of stress management and physical therapy
improves the overall results by allowing healing to occur on multiple
levels. It clears the way for you to rediscover the abilities you may
have thought you'd left behind and to improve the quality of your life.
You don't have to worry about forgetting the exercises. With the audiotape
