Toolbox for Patients

I strongly believe in providing thorough education to my patients regarding the "why and how" of their injury, basics of anatomy and how to prevent injuries from reoccurring. Empowering them with an understanding of their condition will help patients manage their injury and put them in charge of their rehabilitation.

Visit often to access up to date resources on injury prevention, concussion awareness, relaxation and much more. Have a favorite link you would like to share? Do not hesitate to email me to have it added to the toolbox.
