Q&A WITH DR. WRIGHT
What are you most passionate about professionally? Personally? Personally, I am extremely passionate about rescuing dogs and pitbull advocacy groups as well as physical health and wellness. Professionally, I love to help people to not only feel better, but perform better both in their daily lives but in athletic performance.
What three traits define you? I embody kindness, honesty and empathy in all things I endeavor.
What would you do even if you didn’t get paid to do it? Teach people how to help themselves feel better through home exercise and proper eating.
What are you complimented on most in your work? How thorough I am and how I help patients to truly understand their diagnosis/how we help them improve.
What problems do you consistently solve for your clients? How to make long lasting beneficial changes to their biomechanics through slow changes to behavior.
In your work or creative process, what concepts are sacred? Which rules have you made, which ones do you follow? I never am willing to make a recommendation that is not backed up by medical findings and evidence based practices. I vowed never to allow a script to dictate care and believe that every person is unique and care for each person should be as individual as they are.
