Our Story and Mission

Our Story

A few years ago, my mother was severely injured during a routine procedure which left her unable to walk and I became her caregiver. Going back and forth to physician and therapy visits added to my mom’s pain. Sitting in the waiting room for 45 minutes waiting to see the doctor was extremely painful for her. This coupled with the ride home and getting back into the house made the visits to the therapists and physicians enormously painful events. With every visit, I said to myself, “There has to be a better way; someone should offer a virtual way of treating patients in pain.” I searched and could not find a digital platform that provided an integrated approach to treat people with acute or chronic pain without leaving their home. In 2014, my vision for Home Protherapy™ was born.

Home Protherapy™ focuses on helping patients with musculoskeletal pain improve their quality of life in the comfort of their home.

Our Mission

Home Protherapy™ is a user friendly, convenient and quick way to gain effective pain relief and maximize your function. We offer a conservative and “integrated approach” with physicians, behavioral health, and physical therapy when needed. This platform provides the perfect forum to speak with your provider so a customized treatment plan can be designed. Our goal is to treat you with as little medication as possible.

I welcome you to share the vision for this integrated approach to relieve your pain. Make an appointment today.
