Brian was very friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. He was thorough in his examination of my back injury and explained what he was looking for/finding the whole session. He has a unique ability to explain complex muscle issues in plain termsthat helped me understand my problem. I look forward to continuing to work with Brian!
