For physical therapy patients, full evaluation with plan for care and goal development are included in the first visit. For fitness clients, an initial general assessment and plan development I design personalized programs for weight-loss and fitness.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have been a Physical Therapist for almost 20 years, training all types of post-injury patients. I lecture for three physical therapy departments, Chatham, Duquesne and Utica. I am also a Certified CPR Instructor the American Heart Association.
Due to my training, I keep a close on anyone with health conditions and prior surgery or injury to make sure you train safely.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I decided that the current format for getting people back to life whether after injury or for fitness is lacking a holistic approach.
As a physical therapist, I see the need to address functional deficits and shape a program that leads to true progression and return to life not just one body part at a time.

What their goals are; the more specific the more likely for success.
