The treatment goal is to work with the client to eliminate the cause of issue using a combination of techniques that are specific for each individual. The same patient may receive a technique that will be different from one session to another session based on their needs. My priority is to target the root of the problem, instead of offering temporary relief. Ultimately, I want to save my patients from unnecessary surgeries or other invasive treatments.
