"I respect how an active and healthy lifestyle is important to not only our physical health, but mental health as well, and I strive to help patients return to their regular activities as quickly and as safely as possible. I don’t always believe in the “No pain, no gain” mentality. It is important to be able to identify and distinguish between “good” pain and “bad” pain when it comes to exercise and rehab."
