To provide a thorough "Differential Diagnosis", conservative treatment plan, expectation of treatment, prognosis and consultation to educate you, the patient, to manage your disorder independently, with as little invasive treatment as possible. By utilizing a "Multidisciplinary" approach and a "Biopsychosocial " model I provide a comprehensive management protocol.
To enable the patient to develop multiple skills to manage pain with a conservative, non-invasive protocol to ultimately decrease pain and improve function involving the patient as an integral part of the team.
