PRACTICE

PHILOSOPHY

Dr. Aaron Snyder PT, DPT, CFMT, ATC, Co-Founder

I have been an athlete for my entire life which, sadly for me, means that I have experienced multiple injuries. I have felt, first hand, how different PT approaches can be life changing in either a good or bad way.  I am committed to changing it for the good.  

I devote my practice to making sure that each patient that I work with gets the best possible PT approach.  I am determined to help you find the original cause of your pain, not just chase it. Chasing pain is a bandaid approach and really only leads to more chronic issues, which nobody wants!

As a Doctor of Physical Therapy, certified in Functional Manual Therapy (CFMT), I practice using a full body, holistic approach.  I use manual techniques to address mechanical dysfunction of the soft tissues, joints, viscera and neuromuscular system while also utilizing manual neuromuscular facilitation to build motor control and return to efficient movement patterns needed for a Thriving body.  With this approach, assessment and treatment must go far beyond range of motion and strength testing. The cookie cutter approach does not cut it in this treatment model.

So, whether you are a professional athlete, weekend warrior or just want to be able to perform daily tasks without pain, together we can develop a plan to return, and likely progress beyond, your normal functional level.

I look forward to meeting you and helping you achieve your full potential!
