Dr. Ivan Huergo MPT, DPT, MO, MTC, MATcs, doesn’t believe people need to suffer through the pain. Ivan wants his clients to feel empowered and by working together they can lessen the effect of aches and pains. His specialty is integrating several manual approaches into a tissue-specific framework differentiating Joint – Muscle – Nerve – Connective Tissue pathology.
