I am really interested in treating musculoskeletal injuries, however I like working with a variety of cases. I always enjoy treating a wide range of conditions. 

What is one piece of advice you would give to a client? 

One piece of advice I would give to a client would be to always keep moving, movement and physical has endless benefits to the body. It is also important to find a balance between rest and exercise
