We always mistakenly think that the site of pain is the source of the problem. In fact, unless you have a direct trauma to a certain body part recently, treatment targeting the local area only may not be enough to resolve the pain, especially if you are experiencing chronic issues. In fact, the area of pain and/or dysfunctions can be resulted from a series of compensations that take place elsewhere in your body. For example, hip or back pain can be caused by unresolved past ankle injury, or headaches might be stemming from a stiff neck.
We know that optimal recovery occurs when the underlying causes are addressed, therefore we take a whole-person approach in the assessment and treatment. Besides the physical aspect of the ailments, we also take into account the different aspects of health, such as the patient’s general wellbeing, lifestyle, diet, daily habits, psychological and social aspects, in formulating the treatment plan aiming atthe primary “driver” of the problem.The Integrated Approach helps practitioners to find and treat the root cause(s), and therefore bringing lasting results and optimized bodily functions.
This approach is particularly useful on people with chronic or recurrent conditions that are unresponsive or have responded poorly or only temporarily to direct treatment modalities.
