When you are injured, you have many choices in selecting a Physical Therapist. My manual therapy skills set me apart from other physical therapists. I am a Mulligan certified practitioner, the first in Los Angeles, I have my doctor of Physical Therapy from University of Southern California and am also a board certified Orthopedic Clinical Specialist.
When I was 19, I injured my neck and learned first hand the positive impact physical therapy can have on improving the quality of one’s life. Nothing satisfies me more than seeing a patient leave my clinic running, skipping and jumping at their pre-injury level.
I am motivated by the goal of improving the quality of my patients’ lives. I especially enjoy treating the challenging patients, so that I can try to put the puzzle together. I have been able to help a patient when their previous therapists could not.
Located in Manhattan Beach, I specialize in rehabilitation of my patients who have various orthopedic injuries, including injuries to the foot, ankle, knee, hip, spine (low back, mid back and neck), shoulder, elbow, wrist hand, jaw, and balance dysfunction. I am also able to cast and evaluate patients for orthotics for various types of shoes.
