June’s Vision…“I believe in a holistic approach to wellness and rehabilitation as I work together with each patient to achieve overall function and independence. Focusing on education, stressing the importance of their home exercise program, and emphasizing proper body mechanics are all part of returning the patient to the highest level of function and preventing reoccurrence of injuries.”
