In brief: Right program

The first questions is wether or not the diagnosis is correct.
Too often patients are sent to pt without any specific directions for the therapist. All pt is not the same. Even if all treatments are appropriate there still is a change of continued pain. The goal of pain management is to do just that. Manage the pain. The goal is to improve function to maintain quality of life.
