"As we treat patients with pain, we always look someplace else in the body to find the cause of the pain. As we attempt to prevent surgical intervention when possible, we find and correct the cause of the problem, we don't just treat the pain. Even after surgery, our rehab programs are aimed at correcting the original problem that caused the pain and the need for surgery."
