- Allan L.

“I am at the point where all my earlier physical sins are coming back to haunt me. I had come to believe that the pain and discomfort was going to be something I would just have to accept and work around or through. Scott claimed there was a lot we could address and felt I had nothing to lose, so I figured I would give it a try. I am so glad that I did. Within six weeks, I have seen a significant reduction in chronic discomfort and I am starting to realize greater mobility – I could not be more pleased. Scott is a great listener and genuinely wants to get his patients healthy as quickly as possible.”

“i’ve been dealing with an atypical arm muscle injury from rock climbing & finally decided i needed to consult a professional or risk causing permanent damage. scott was absolutely great – helping me pinpoint the problem when i was at a loss, answering my endless questions, & just as importantly, reassuring me that this can & will heal. i feel confident in the plan he created for me after noticing improvement in a short period of time, & I seriously can’t wait to never have to deal with this arm pain ever again!”
