Love Letter to Albuquerque

Posted April 25, 2017

My newest article is now live: A Love Letter to Albuquerque, NM. For 34 years, Albuquerque has been such an important part of my life and the evolution of my clinic—from my first office, NM Myotherapy and Exercise, in 1984, to the current incarnation of MyoRehab that I founded in 1997 with my partner, George Pellegrino.

On June 30, 2017, MyoRehab will be entering the next chapter. I am closing the Albuquerque office and moving back to Rhode Island, where I'm originally from, to be near family. I will continue to teach and treat patients in Rhode Island, and intend to return to New Mexico in the winters to treat patients (and ski!)

I love the New Mexico sunshine and all my patients, colleagues and friends. Thank you for all your love and support through the years!

Pain Therapy Device: Celluma LED

In September I was a presenter at the Integrated Academy of Pain Management (formerly the American Academy of Pain Management), a multidisciplinary organization of pain management and healthcare professionals. The presentation went well, and I had the opportunity to learn about a new pain therapy device that I look forward to implementing in treatments. Find out more about it in my latest article, Pain Therapy Device: Celluma LED.


Car Accidents and Myofascial Pain

Posted August 28, 2016

My latest article on Myofascial Pain and Dysfunction is now live! This month I'm discussing car accidents and recurring pain. Even if you have no broken bones, cuts or bruises, you will still suffer with Myofascial Pain and Dysfunction. This is important to know since pain practitioners may only be treating the areas of pain and missing the source of the pain from the Trigger Points in the muscles.
