He prides himself on staying current with the newest research, and adapting new techniques and protocols into his work. He is a certified McKenzie practitioner and certified DNS Exercise Trainer. 

His goals in creating NAH&F was to bring to you a place where you could truly invest in your own health, through education and preventative measures. The design of NeuroActive Fitness classes is an opportunity for all that are interested to participate in a "self-fixing" protocol, and prevent those from needing to become "patients." It is a neurological pre-habilitation strategy that fits seamlessly with whatever it is you're already doing, and can help prevent injury while also improving athletic performance.

His clinical approach is to utilize every tool at YOUR disposal, and to help you get well fast.  He believes in treating patients fewer times and focusing on active strategies that the patients could perform themselves producing long-lasting or even permanent solutions.
