What others are saying: Steve is the local authority on complex spine rehab. I have trusted my whole family to his care. He is an extremely good manual “hands on” therapist. He is compassionate and excellent at explaining to patients why they are having pain and how they can avoid future complications.
What patients are saying:
"I had severe back pain for five years. I tried chiropractors, other physical therapists, acupuncture, radiofrequency, exercise, massage, food changes, etc. At its worst I struggle to work four hours per day. After two months at OSI, I am now pain free most days. I can’t express how grateful I am for you helping me get the quality of my life back. Thank you!"
"I used to love to downhill ski, but haven’t done so in five years due to my back pain. I went out to Afton yesterday and skied for several hours. I wasn’t in pain afterwards and I’m not in pain today either. You have allowed me to get my life back. I probably saw 30 other people before you who tried to help me. You have an amazing gift and I’m grateful that you shared it with me. You have completely changed my life ad I can’t thank you enough!"
"Steve is extremely competent and I have a lot of confidence in his input."
"Steve is the best. I had no idea I would be treated so well. He is very professional and very positive."
"This was my third set of treatments with Steve over a several year period. I keep coming back because he really knows what he’s doing."
