Meet the Doctor

A Word from the Doctor

Dr. Simmons

The treatment of back, neck and joint pain has changed greatly from when I first started practice 21 years ago. Advancements in treatment, the understanding of the pain generated by the musculoskeletal system and using effective techniques discovered by healthcare experts from around the world has allowed all practitioners to prescribe more efficient therapy plans. We have reduced our treatment times in half after initiating some of these techniques in our practice. This translates into lower costs and fewer visits by our patients. In addition, there is an emphasis on teaching our patients the techniques and strategies to “self help” their conditions without coming into the office. Our patients enjoy this shift in treatment philosophy as it saves them time and money. I have always resisted the temptation to join a large “group practice” to save on operating costs and share office personnel. I was concerned that I would lose control of the quality of patient care. As a referral based clinic, most of our new patients are referred to our office by satisfied patients. What better compliment could a doctor receive than to have a friend, coworker or family member referred to his or her clinic for treatment? Our office is dedicated to the modern principals of evidence based, functional and active self care to help patients with musculoskeletal pain. We look forward to participating in your return to health.
