The SONOMA Method

Have you ever felt like you have lost your quality of life?
Are there things you would like to do but aren't able to because of pain and lack of function?

Dr. B. Timothy Harcourt, researched and developed a system to track patients improvement over time. This holds our office accountable for your health and your improvement. Once patients have received some care they will be re-examined to determine not only that their pain has subsided but how they are getting their function, range of motion and strength back. This Functional Capacity Assessment system that was developed by Dr. Timothy Harcourt and tested and researched at Penn State University is called SONOMA Method and is taught to other doctors all over the United States.
