A multidisciplinary treatment approach. Our doctors work with physical therapists, occupational therapists, and athletic trainers to create an evidence-based, individualized treatment plan for each patient.

We also offer our patients a conservative approach to care that can help them avoid surgery through several non-operative treatment options.

Specialized services

Gait analysis. Our gait analysis specialists use a combination of observation and precise measurements to identify biomechanical abnormalities, even very slight ones, that can diminish an athlete’s optimal movement.

Physician guided bike fit. Most bikes are fitted at the store which sells them. However, many people still have knee pain, back pain, neck pain or hip pain while cycling. A physician guided bike fit evaluates a patient’s biomechanical uniqueness as well as strength and balance to reduce the risk of and avoid injury.
