Back Pain

Back pain has many causes. Whatever the cause, if it is an orthopedic dysfunction (a musculoskeletal problem), your back pain is the result of your particular habits and patterns of movement.

This is a good thing, because it means that by analyzing your patterns of movement, we can see what muscles are being used too much, and which muscles are not used enough. This allows us to make accurate recommendations for movement and exercises that will improve your balance and reduce your pain.

“We are a family of grape growers, winemakers, and business people, with a recreational cyclist thrown into the mix. After one of us was referred to Amy by an orthopedic surgeon in hopes of avoiding surgery for a severely herniated lumbar disk, the treatment and outcome were so successful that Amy became our family’s go-to physical therapist… an impressive endorsement, since we travel from the Napa Valley to see her! Her supremely focused, completely customized treatment methods must be experienced to be appreciated. Amy has played an important role in keeping our family up and running!”
