Coming Soon - A More Organized Outreach
There’s a big problem in healthcare today. Most that have pain and movement disorders don’t see us first. Instead, they go down the path of addictive drugs, expensive tests, and sometimes aggressive surgery...when all they needed was physical therapy.
In 2018, we will be providing you with organized resources, through a variety of communications channels, about neuro-musculoskeletal problems and solutions. The fact is, seeing a physical therapist first for movement disorders, in most cases, is the best choice.
Stay tuned and make sure you provide us with your feedback.
Until Next Month,
