I am interested in refining the clinical process of identifying pain generators, such as mechanical instability, hypermobility or hypomobility of joints, ligament and tendon injuries, microtrauma, referred pain, and "double-crush" nerve compression syndromes.
Successfully treating a patient begins with understanding their condition. I want to achieve the most accurate diagnosis possible with the best available technology and sound clinical skills, guided by common sense. A complete understanding includes social and psychological factors. Successful treatment requires listening to the patient's needs and goals as well as the technical diagnosis.
