One-on-one Pri­vate Pay Ther­apy

MidWeek (Hawaii) - - Front Page -

Where did you re­ceive your school­ing and train­ing, and how long have you been in prac­tice?

I grad­u­ated in 2006 with a doc­tor­ate in phys­i­cal ther­apy de­gree from Loma Linda Univer­sity in Cal­i­for­nia. I have more than 10 years of ex­pe­ri­ence in spinal cord in­jury ther­apy and stroke re­cov­ery. My spe­cial­ties in­clude neu­ro­log­i­cal and spinal cord in­jury re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion and re­cov­ery. I also spe­cial­ized in sports in­jury pre­ven­tion/re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion and man­ual ther­apy, as well as bal­ance train­ing.

How did you be­come in­ter­ested in phys­i­cal ther­apy?

My girl­friend (now wife of 13 years) con­vinced me not to go to med­i­cal school. I’m a very ac­tive per­son, and suited me very well. It also a dif­fer­ence in peo­ple’s lives. Phys­i­cal ther­apy is one of the most re­ward­ing pro­fes­sions out there.

Can you tell us a lit­tle more about what you do at Well­ness Neuro & SCI?

Well­ness Neuro & SCI grew out of a com­pany we started in 2009 called Well­ness PT, which only of­fers pri­vate pay home ther­apy ser­vices. We saw a need and have re­cently opened up a phys­i­cal location.

The goal i s t o pro­vide con­sis­tent and in­ten­sive re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion ser­vices to our clients suf­fer­ing from dif­fer­ent forms of neu­ro­log­i­cal or spinal cord in­juries with­out be­ing bound by in­surance caps. This may be in or­der to en­hance day-to-day func­tions or help­ing them to as walk­ing again and main­tain­ing their in­de­pen­dence.

We cre­ate very spe­cific treat­ment plans tailored to each client’s needs by pro­vid­ing one- on- one care, in­clud­ing man­ual treat­ment and ex­er­cise.

What types of ser­vices do you of­fer?

At Well­ness Neuro & SCI we of­fer:

• Neuro/stroke and re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion ser­vices

• Spinal cord in­jury re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion

and mo­bil­ity

Most of our clients don’t have the abil­ity to use stan­dard ex­er­cise equip­ment you see in gyms. They need phys­i­cal help to stand and walk. This is why our fac­ulty is fully ac­ces­si­ble to all clients and is aimed at pro­vid­ing a safe en­vi­ron­ment
