Derek’s Tip To Clients:

Motion is lotion. Finding a movement that you can comfortably do at home during the recovery process is key to timely rehabilitation. Tissue responds to consistent load over time so moving outside of your treatment time is essential. You can expect to have Dr. Nash work on manually improving your ability to move in office followed by instruction and advice for how to continue towards whatever goal we have decided on at home.
