Skip the drive and traffic!  MOVE Sports and Spine is an online clinic for your musculoskeletal needs!

Learn why you need telemedicine!

We believe in the following principles:
  • Solutions should be simple.
  • Nutrition and lifestyle over medication.
  • Interventions/testing have a place but should be minimized.
  • More is not always better.
  • How care is delivered matters.

I am a board certified physician in sports medicine and Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation (PM&R.) My clinical interests include biomechanics, rehabilitation medicine, pain science, interventional spine care, electrodiagnostic medicine, musculoskeletal ultrasound, manual medicine, and medical education.

My expertise is understanding how injuries/conditions of bone, muscle, and nerve influence movement. Injuries happen and usually need non-surgical intervention.  Your care can be coordinated by video conferencing, secure messaging, or texting.  With telemedicine you have around the clock access to your care through our patient portal.  If imaging or referrals are needed I am happy to coordinate your care.

When you need care you get me directly.  No insurance authorization.  No putting on hold.  No driving or parking necessary.  Care should be easy.  Period.

In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my amazing wife, chasing my 2 children, and practicing jiu-jitsu.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What is telemedicine?

Telemedicine is the remote delivery of healthcare using secure telecommunication technology.

How common is telemedicine?

There are about 200 telemedicine networks. Over half of US hospitals currently offer telemedicine services.

What are the benefits?

Direct access to care. Better outcomes. No driving or waiting times.

What type of devices do I need?

Video conferencing can be done with a desktop and camera or mobile device. Preferably an iOS or Android mobile device.

Do I need Wifi?

No, but it is highly recommended for a strong signal. In the event there is a bad connection I will call you on your cell phone or land line.

What areas do you service?

We are currently licensed in the state of Virginia to practice. However, we are looking expand where there is a need!

How can you diagnose through telemedicine?

Most musculoskeletal conditions can be diagnosed by history alone. Through the camera you can show where you pain is located and even demonstrate painful movements. Imaging can also be ordered if necessary.

What type of treatment can you offer?

Education is the most important part of your treatment! In addition we provide customized exercise program, prescription medications (not controlled substances), and referral for imaging or specialists.

Why don’t you take insurance?

We want to re-establish the doctor-patient relationship. Participating with insurances comes with certain rules that often get in the way of patient care. No referral or prior authorization necessary. Hassle free care!

What conditions do you treat?

A range of conditions can be addressed related to the spine, shoulder, hip, knee, and elbow. However, some conditions do need a formal face-to-face visit. If one is needed, I will provide you with a game plan to follow.
