What I do as a practitioner is provide the kind of care I want for myself and my family. My practice style is interactive, meaning we make decisions together, co-decide treatment options for pain relief, and I will help you achieve new range of motion. If you need weight loss I have very successful practical plans, and if you want to improve your fitness I can help guide you along. I’m formally trained in pain reduction strategies, flexibility and mobility training, weight loss, strength training, cardio and all its many forms, nutritional supplements, diets, and stress reduction. I have studied all of these concepts for 35 years. The things I continue to do and use are methods I know have worked for other people. I have stayed at the top of my game by staying in active practice, I’ve continued learning, I am an instructor to other Doctors around the world, I enjoy writing, sharing, and I continue to learn my craft.
I have been challenged by difficult patients with chronic pain, over-achievers with lots of stress, and patients with crazy character. I’ve learned and tried many different techniques, studied with masters and put together my own processes based on what works. For example if you ask me “What’s a good exercise?” I will say ‘One the patient does’ – I teach the ones I know patients do because I live it every day. As I have gotten older I have become more direct, a no nonsense style, and I have applied ‘healthy aging’ knowledge to myself and my patients. I am more serious about helping people regain lost range of motion in the neck, shoulders and back and then it is up to you to never lose it. That is my ‘healthy aging’ program for patients.
A session with me starts with getting to know you. Then we make a plan or program. Maybe you will need to schedule twice a week, once a week, once every two weeks. I don’t know that answer until we meet. I will teach you what you can do at home on your own. The truth is that what we do in the office is 10-20% of your change, the other 80-90% is what you do at home. Please call my West Los Angeles office 310-444-9393 for an appointment.
