In his experience, Ivan has seen tremendous progress when also addressing different factors outside of musculoskeletal impairments such as stress reactivity, social circumstances, coping behaviors, and attitudes towards the injury. He plans on obtaining certifications in the near future in specialized fields to become more well-rounded. Ivan is always striving to expand his skill sets and learn from his peers in order to give his patients the best treatments possible.
