Care Philosophy

As pain is an experience, the pain management involves diagnostic clarification, identifying and addressing barriers to the care and changing the habits to not only reduce the pain and disability but also improve the function and overall quality of life. The aim is always to treat the "person and not disease" using integrative team approach.
