Our Practice

First and foremost we look to movement. Our goal is to return our patients to their active lifestyles, uninhibited by pain or dysfunction.

We believe in treating our patients as a whole and resolving the root of their injuries. We are not treating individual body parts or chasing symptoms.

We work closely with other GZU departments to offer you a collaborative approach to improve your health. When collaborating with our surgical specialists, we strive to provide the optimal recovery experience for all our post surgical patients.
