Sue has a tireless passion for helping people and guiding them through their journey of recovery. She has vast experience in treating a wide array of injuries and focuses on treating the cause of the injury rather than just the symptoms. This approach facilitates a speedy recovery for return to pain-free activity (whether that be in high level sports or basic daily living) but also allows Sue to address underlying physical limitations once and for all!
