Emile has a manual approach to treatment often working on the myofascial system through his hands and dry needles. He emphasizes the role of exercise in short and long-term recovery as well as prevention wellness. He enjoys treating a wide range of conditions from ankle sprains to persistent pains and meeting the patient at whatever level they are at in their journey of recovery.
