I’ve worked with athletes and individuals from all walks of life throughout my career. Evaluating the patient’s whole body with a functional movement screen plays a role in identifying other factors that may be contributing to the injury they are dealing with. Understanding the basic science of healing, evidence based best practices and close communication with our physicians ensures we are providing the best care possible to our patients. It is important to understand the patients goals and objectives to determine the most appropriate therapeutic intervention. Lastly, partnering with our patients on a long term plan, consisting of a solid strength, flexibility and endurance program is crucial to promote a healthy lifestyle and to prevent injury in the future.
UCHealth’s integrated medical group provides leading edge technology to evaluate and treat musculoskeletal injuries for individuals from all walks of life. Our physicians, therapists and athletic trainers are in continual communication ensure the most effective and efficient continuum of care.
