Approach to treatment:

"Having recovered from a serious motor vehicle accident, I understand the impact of injury on one's daily functioning."

My primary goal is to provide a patient centered approach to each assessment and treatment. Each injury will be thoroughly assessed beginning with a history of the current issues, followed by a detailed assessment of the musculoskeletal systems involved.

Dacia's focused one on one approach to treatment allows her patients to feel educated and informed about the nature of their injury and the plan to address it moving forward. Through this therapeutic relationship, her clients can meet their goals quickly and efficiently.
