I highly recommend working with Orion for physical therapy! I went to him with a new sacrum injury, plus a host of old injuries and imbalances in my left leg. These injuries were causing pain in my yoga practice and keeping me from doing some of my favorite poses. After 8 weeks, the sacrum injury is no longer bothering me and I am on my way to addressing the old pain and imbalances. I am back to doing all the yoga poses that I love!

I immediately loved Orion's holistic practices, with an emphasis on the mind-body connection in exercise and mental pain management techniques. He also gave me exercises that I (a veteran PT attendee) had never encountered and seemed to really get to the root of my weakness. We also focused on concepts for building an at-home workout that is efficient and makes sense for my schedule. I now have a solid understanding of my old injuries and a plan for building strength in the future!
