“As an athlete, I understand the unique challenges and the physical demands on the body. I share the athlete’s “mindset”, the drive to push the limits of your body to achieve optimal performance. I also recognize the value for the body to heal at it’s maximum potential to maintain and restore function.” Todd uses a “whole person approach” when treating and empowering his patients.
