Physicians obtain a thorough history through patient interview, perform physical examinations, and review pertinent records and reports. Each patient is discussed by a multidisciplinary team of physicians, physical therapists, and a nurse. An individualized treatment plan is formulated for each patient. Consultation from experts in neurology, neurosurgery, orthopedics, surgery, psychiatry, radiology, and other specialists are obtained as needed. Based upon the information gained, our physicians may schedule, physical and/or occupational therapy evaluations. Team members review the data and prepare recommendations for treatment based on individual patient requirements. These recommendations are shared with patients and referring physicians.
Certain injuries or disorders may be improved with one or two treatment modalities. Many require a multi-modal regimen that includes medical procedures and medications, coupled with psychological support and physical therapy, to alleviate pain and its consequences.
