Identify the causes: If you treat pain as a symptom and treat the symptom you treat the patient forever and they never get well. You need someone willing and able to identify causes and remove or treat the causes and the pain will go away.

Diagnos the problem: Its important to know the etiology of your pain before starting a treatment plan. All treatments have main effects and side effects, the key is to maximize the former and minimize the latter. If you are looking for a comprehensive approach, think about consulting a physical medicine and rehab doc, also called a physiatrist.
