I have 28 years of experience, and specialize in the field of physical therapy with specific knowledge in the areas of orthopedics, back pain and neck pain. I have published on such topics as mechanical diagnosis and therapy for physical therapists. I have testified on traction, standard of care and scope of practice. I have owned a practice (20 years), taught at three universities and acted as leadership in my professional association both at the state and national level. I hold a doctorate, am an orthopedic clinical specialist and a diplomate in mechanical diagnosis and therapy.
