When a Wealth of Experience Leads to Delos – A New Therapist’s Perspective

When a Wealth of Experience Leads to Delos – A New Therapist’s Perspective

Share the joy

I came to Delos Therapy as a chiropractor, a massage therapist, and an anatomy and physiology college instructor. My background in physical medicine and bodywork is quite varied. I studied pre-med at Northwestern University in Evanston, earned a doctorate degree in chiropractic medicine from National University of Health Sciences in Lombard, and completed massage therapy school. I’m also certified in acupuncture and have completed seminars in Graston Technique and in the McKenzie Method of Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy. I’ve learned a lot about injuries and different treatment modalities.

In private practice, I found that my patients who saw the most dramatic results were the ones who addressed their soft tissue dysfunction – not just their joint complaints. Joint manipulations are of course very beneficial to the whole health of a person, but tight muscles will pull the bones that are involved in a joint chronically out of place. Addressing those tight muscles is the cornerstone to achieving pain-free movement.

After learning about Delos Therapy, I was incredibly enthusiastic about coming on board with this technique. At Delos, I use Delos Therapy exclusively to address pain and stiffness. The philosophy behind Delos Therapy is to get to the root of the problem. The therapists at Delos understand the biochemistry and the physics of fascia and muscle contraction. Delos Therapy in no way disagrees with progressive research and science – it builds on it. Delos works with physical therapy, with chiropractic, with massage therapy. It’s not competition; it’s the foundation that builds optimal health.

I’m very interested in talking to other therapy providers about what Delos Therapy does and how we can work together for the optimum health of our patients. Relieving pain is my life’s work, and I am personally invested in the health and quality of life of every single one of my clients.
