Interdisciplinary tx: Most pain clinics will do a thorough review of records and a thorough history and physical before you begin treatment. Collaboration between a physician, physical therapy, occupational therapy, and psychologist are often common place. If the clinic has a functional restoration focus, expect a gentle consistent increase in physical activity to promote improved stamina and range of motion.
