After six years of serving the Roanoke Valley, I have shut down my practice in order to pursue a Doctor of Physical Therapy degree from Radford University, with expected completion in May 2015. As a physical therapist, I will be able to provide more comprehensive care while maintaining my commitment to helping you overcome chronic pain.

At Roanoke Neuromuscular Therapy I help you overcome chronic pain. Why? Because pain robs you of the ability to pursue your normal activities, whether that involves outdoor adventures, playing with your children, or just bringing groceries in from the car.

Neuromuscular Therapy helps clear a specific type of pain, restoring your freedom to live your life the way you choose. And when you've experienced long-term pain, and are now free of it, you appreciate what an incredible gift it is to have a body that works.

This work has a high success rate because in most chronic pain cases, a major component of the pain is from trigger points and ischemia--a reversible muscle problem. This is true for most aches and pains associated with getting older, as well as most cases of old injuries, arthritis and even herniated disks.1 To be clear, this work will not reverse arthritic joint damage or repair a herniated disk, but it will clear the pain from trigger points and ischemia that frequently accompanies those conditions. In other words, you'd be surprised at the results you can get just by treating the muscular component of the problem.

I highly recommend The Mystery of Pain, written by my teacher, Doug Nelson. It will change the way you think about your pain and motivate you to take charge of it.
