James Freshner, MSPT
Legacy Physical Therapy
Treatment philosophy: My clinical approach is to address tissue, joint or nerve pain, and then provide strengthening, if indicated. Instructions are provided at the first appointment for a home program. As pain decreases, a functional exercise program is developed. Treatment is evidence-based; and specifically applied to each patient’s needs. Member APTA & OPTA Dr. Freshner's clinical interests include: Manual therapy approaches of Maitland, McKenzie, and Mulligan. Butler approach for treatment of chronic pain.
