When facing a sports or activity related injury, finding the primary cause is key to successful treatment. Often pain in one body part is caused by abnormal patterns of movement involving the body as a whole. Marco specializes in performing interconnected functional assessments of his patients and then works with them to find solutions. When providing therapy, Marco is a highly skilled manual therapist. Most importantly, he works well in an integrated support team of practitioners on behalf of his patients.
