As an osteopathically trained spine and sports medicine physician I am dedicated to helping my patients lead a healthy and independent lifestyle. My mission is to make every person who comes to me for help a life-long exerciser. Exercise has been shown to promote muscle and bone strength as well as heart and lung fitness.
Yoga has been a passion of mine for the last 10 years. I brought Yoga into my home and have been practicing it with my whole family for the last six. I was amazed to see the transformation of my own and my family’s mental and physical well-being. Through my own practice I have come to appreciate the health and the medical benefits of Yoga and wanted to pass that on to my patients. This is how Osteowellness Yoga was born. Steeped in research and backed by medical science, this program has already helped hundreds of folks with back and joint problems improve their quality of life.
