Approach to treatment:
“My own pursuits have not been without injury and I understand how challenging it can be both physically and psychologically.”
Every new patient session begins with a discussion of the problem followed by a detailed movement exam, looking at the muscles, joints, ligaments and nerve tissue systems.
Sharon combines her personal experiences and education to create a one-to-one treatment approach that will enable clients to return to their desired activities and hobbies quickly.
