Rehabilitation

We provide innovative physical therapy services in the clinic and natural environment settings with a strong emphasis on posture, biomarkers, Neuro-Developmental Treatment approach (NDT), Masgatova Neurosensorimotor Reflex Integration (MNRI) and use of Kinesio┬« tape applications. 

As a clinician, my goal is to appropriately assess a patient's needs to provide the tools necessary to achieve functional goals. Parents/caregivers are central to the rehabilitation process! Nothing happens without you!
