Terry incorporates patient education to help patients understand what is causing their symptoms and how to correct their problems to improve their functional mobility and independence.
“I like being able to help a patient feel better and return to whatever activity they enjoy participating in without pain. Whether it is a manual technique that I perform or an exercise that I give to them to do on their own, seeing that light come on when the patient recognizes the benefit of what we are doing is very rewarding to me.”
