Providing accurate and appropriate care for patients is a necessity. I am passionate about reflecting on my practice and ensuring I am providing the best patient care possible; including best evidence, best scientific reasoning, and the highest skill level possible. My interests in physical therapy are pain science (including all those listed by Matt above), advancement of the profession of PT (including Direct Access, social outreach, etc.), and the use of scientific reasoning and (healthy) skepticism when reviewing scientific literature.
