Expertise

I can answer questions regarding prevention and management of back and neck injuries as related to how you work, play, or take care of yourself and home. As both an occupational therapist and ergonomics expert I can help answer questions about strategies to reduce musculoskeletal strain with daily tasks. My background is in occupational therapy and I am able to answer questions regarding specific medical injuries and workers compensation. I cannot answer question regarding medications or medical treatment outside of therapy practice.
