I have been a private practice owner since 2000. As a practicing owner I felt very compelled to have myself as well as my staff to be able to give excellent care as well as be able to stand out from other private practices.
WHY WE DEVELOPED THIS METHOD
Frustration with treating neurological patients for a long term treatment time (years) with very slow progress
No current therapy treatments were producing desired results in the neurological population
Need for a new, effective therapy technique that has permanent results for the neurological patient
Normal movement patterns needed to be restored to neurological patients
The Miracle Taping Method is the answer to the long awaited need for a neurological therapy technique that is based on real science producing real results.
I completed my Doctor of Physical Therapy at Chatham University in August 2011. I was elected by the selection committee of the Ohio State University Hospital and the Mount Carmel Hospitals to be a speaker at the second annual stroke symposium on October 17, 2014. I was asked to present the background information and explanation for the novel taping technique that I developed for neurological patients.
I expanded my private practice and continued with research and development of new techniques. I developed a second patent pending taping technique (Miracle Taping ™) this past year. The combinations of the two techniques have produced better long term results.
My neurological patients have been able to obtain new movement patterns for the first time since their injury after being taped. They have all maintained their new patterns for greater than one year duration. This is evidence that the results are permanent and long term. I have treated brain injuries as old as 33 years status post injury. This supports my theory that neurogenesis can occur at any age and at any time after a brain injury.
