Marty chose “i’m balancing” on his business cards as finding balance in life is his greatest struggle. Helping to achieve balance in his patients is his quest. Balancing the mechanics between neighboring joints, balancing soft tissues within the patterns of motions that occur, and striving to balance his patients’ desires with their abilities.
