This specialized treatment using the Schroth Method laid the groundwork for becoming the premier spinal deformity clinic in the state. Along with treating scoliosis, David also focuses on pediatric back pain. He also is skilled in chronic low back pain and many other spine disorders and pains.
Orthopedics has always been David's first love. He still loves to treat those with shoulder, knee, ankle, and pains in all other joints of the body. He also loves to treat post-surgical conditions.
