What is causing my pain?
I often tell patients to try not to panic about a diagnosis, what we call it or how its defined does not change how I treat it. Even though this might not exactly be comforting, we don’t treat according to a diagnosis. Most of the time it is a cumulative buildup of pain which leads to dysfunction which leads you to our doorstep.
The body is remarkably adaptive, our first priority is to rule out any bad diagnosis, and slowly work on the problem areas. With time this approach leads to the best results and can be done completely without any imagery.
One of the best parts of being a therapist is the investigative work. Breaking down a patient's functional limitations and symptoms and how that led them to the predicament they are in is our goal as a therapist. At Synergy, we treat each patient individually, not based on their diagnosis. Come visit us and we’ll help you reach your goals.
