Persistent pain conditions are a result of a complex interplay between the physical, cognitive, socioeconomic and emotional factors that are unique to each individual. Consequently, we believe that is essential to treat individuals with persistent pain using a humanistic approach to not only understand an individual’s condition, but to help them achieve their personal goals. Utilizing a humanistic approach to rehabilitation can take your impact beyond the surface level and allow you to help individuals make positive changes that can last a lifetime.
