Frequently Asked Questions
1. Training and Education
Are you qualified? Absolutely. With over 40 years of experience as a licensed physical therapist, I bring a wealth of expertise. Additionally, I’ve extended my training into Life and Health Coaching, Functional Medicine Education, and Integrative Nutrition.
2. Motivation Behind Extra Training
Why go beyond physical therapy? My personal journey through injury, trauma, and toxicity led me to seek comprehensive solutions. The traditional medical model fell short, prompting me to broaden my education to serve myself better. Witnessing the profound impact on my own well-being, I decided to share this approach with my patients.
3. Treatment Philosophy
How do you approach treatment? I conduct thorough full-body and lifestyle evaluations to uncover the root causes of symptoms rather than just addressing the symptoms themselves.
What’s the significance of addressing the root cause? Symptoms often stem from factors like stress, inflammation, physical restrictions, and limiting mindsets. I treat the restrictions rather than the symptoms alone. For instance, shoulder pain might result from issues in the pelvis and trunk.
4. Treatment Program Details
What’s involved in the treatment program? The initial visit (up to 90 minutes) involves a comprehensive history and movement assessment. We create a customized plan based on this. Subsequent sessions (60-90 minutes) focus on specialized manual therapy, tailored movements, low-light laser therapy, and more.
What’s unique about your approach? My holistic approach integrates physical therapy, lifestyle modifications, coaching, accountability, and nutritional support. It empowers you to overcome limitations and enhance your overall well-being.
Do you accept insurance? No, my services are entirely cash-based. However, I can provide a super bill for insurance reimbursement. Physical therapy might be covered, but the coaching, training, and functional medicine aspects typically are not.
How soon can I book an appointment? I strive to accommodate clients within the week, sometimes even within a few days.
7. Ideal Client/Patient
Who benefits most from your approach? My ideal clients are motivated individuals seeking comprehensive solutions beyond traditional medical routes. They’re those tired of limited progress and determined to regain their vitality and quality of life.
