Chronic soft tissue pain is best diagnosed by the most sensitive medical tool, an experienced & wise Physician who uses his/her knowledge of anatomy & biomechanics, combined with sensitive touch, to satisfy the differential diagnosis. Evaluation of body tissues in real time, & as they function, provides essential & critical information; the purview of Osteopaths & Physiatrists.
