How is physical therapy different at Sole Dynamics?
Traditionally, physical medicine views the body as a group of separate parts and focuses on “fixing” the injured part(s). At Sole Dynamics, I take a different approach, understanding that the body operates as a system.
Here, I do not focus solely on the injured part because that will, at best, buy you some time until another injury occurs or, at worst, perpetuate the problem.
Instead, we’ll focus on strengthening your body from the ground up to improve posture, balance, and coordination. Our work together will automatically reduce disability, pain, and risk of injury.
Do you give clients assignments to work on between sessions?
I will not prescribe any prefabricated lists full of exercises to do at home. However, if we discover a helpful experience while working together, I’ll likely suggest that you continue to explore this experience between sessions.
Your lifestyle also impacts your therapy outcomes. I’ll suggest looking into these areas, as well, if you’re not progressing the way you want.
What else should I know to maximize my experience working at Sole Dynamics?
You’ll make the most progress from therapy when you actively engage with the process. When you invest yourself fully and put in the work required to understand your body’s needs, you’ll have a high level of satisfaction after finishing.
Those who go to therapy only because they are told they should, or those expecting a magic cure, benefit less.
What are your credentials?
Am I too far gone to benefit from physical therapy?
I don’t yet know you or your situation, but I can still answer this question with 100% confidence. No.
There is always room for improvement. Clients diagnosed with “degenerative” conditions have improved beyond what anyone expected from our sessions.
I am expecting a child and am not sure about how to guide their development. Could I benefit from a session?
Can my dog (or cat) have a session?
Although I love animals, I am not certified to provide physical therapy to pets.
What if I identify with being in pain and disabled?
I have seen specialists who have told me that my problem has no solution. Should I believe them?
Yes and no.
Yes, because you’ve come to the end of the road of narrowing down your focus on the problem to find a microscopic solution and found a dead end.
No, because you can move down the road in another way, broadening your focus to see how your problem ties into the bigger system constantly at work.
Ultimately, if you’re not satisfied with your current state, please hold out hope. You have many different options available for help.

What does Sole Dynamics mean?
Sole – adjective
If you have sole charge or ownership of something, you are the only person in charge of it or who owns it.
Dynamics – noun
- the branch of mechanics concerned with the motion of bodies under the action of forces.
- the forces or properties which stimulate growth, development, or change within a system or process.
I named the company Sole Dynamics Physical Therapy as an expression of a core belief that all individuals face challenges in exclusive ways and that standardized prescriptive treatments cannot account for the multifactorial etiology of these obstacles.
My mission is to serve as an educator, guiding you to learn about the layered intricacies of your ever-changing body. In my experience, no two people grow to achieve mastery in this the same way. Thus, Sole Dynamics.
