"Over the years, I've discovered that patients want a friendly health care professional - one who listens carefully and communicates clearly in terms the patient can understand. I make every effort to accomplish that. Patients can expect me to listen carefully to fully understand the aches and pains they are experiencing. They can also expect a clear explanation of what their problem is and how we will address it. For me, it's about helping others and the place to start is listening carefully and understanding completely."
I earned my Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Logan College of Chiropractic, St. Louis, Mo. I am board certified by the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners and am certified by OccuPro in Pre-placement exams and Work Harding-Work Conditioning.
My practice consists of treating a variety of muscle and body complaints; from low back pain, neck pain and headaches to pain of the jaw (TMJ) and a variety of other joint problems of the ankles, knees, hips, wrists, elbows and shoulders.
I am fascinated with the interconnections of the body and the restoration of joint motion and mobility. Successfully addressing joint problems is more than simply relieving pain. It is a matter of restoring joint function and muscle function. There are a variety of manual (hands-on) methods and rehabilitation techniques available to allow me to more fully address joint problems and workers' compensation injuries.
Outside of the clinic, I tend to stay active rollerblading and bicycling on local trails and in the winter downhill skiing and ice skating. Several years ago, I discovered yoga and have found that to be very helpful in maintaining my flexibility. Not long ago, I took a wood turning class and learned how to use a wood lathe, creating bowls out of wood and discovering the beauty that can be found inside a block of wood.
