Alvin's treatment approach is that function should always be the first concern. He utilizes several different treatment techniques to help clients reach their full potential. As a proponent of active lifestyles and exercise, Alvin encourages his patients to incorporate as much activity as possible to help with their rehabilitation goals while maintaining an ongoing healthy approach to life.
