Practice Philosophy: I became an osteopathic physician because of its holistic approach to health care. A core principal of osteopathy is that everything in the body is connected and the body does a remarkable job in healing itself. We see better health outcomes when the entire person is treated, not only the illness or injury. As a sports medicine physician, my goal is to help treat and prevent musculoskeletal injuries. I believe that exercise is medicine and that acute or chronic musculoskeletal issues affect our abilities to stay active. I partner with patients to create the best treatment plan and get them back to the activities they love as quickly as possible.
