Carl views each patient as an athlete. His goal is to rehabilitate and motivate them, enabling return to leisure activities, high-level sport or the workplace. Carl’s treatment philosophy includes using a combination of manual and modality therapy, as well as dynamic exercise techniques to help restore normal joint and tissue mobility. Carl assesses his patients as a whole, identifying abnormal movement patterns along the kinetic chain and intrinsic and extrinsic factors that may be contributing to an injury. He directs and applies specific, focused exercises to restore function and improve strength and stability. By educating patients and athletes on the rules of recovery he helps them to protect against injury.
