What is a Biopsychosocial Approach?

Simply put: humans are incredibly complex (tell me something I don’t know, right?)

In the past, a biomedical model of practice placed symptoms, diagnoses, and physiological issues at the forefront of clinician’s mind. While these factors are important, they represent only a fraction of the whole person, the individual patient, sitting in front of us. You are a unique individual with unique situations and factors; not just a diagnosis out of a textbook.

We understand how physical, psychological, and social/environmental factors interact throughout your experience of a disease, injury, or illness. We also understand that there are too many factors at play for rigid treatment protocols or “cookie-cutter” treatment programs.

We don’t simply rely on a diagnosis or symptoms to determine which treatment option, assessment tool, or outcome measure will be most effective for you. We look at your whole person, not just the aches and pains you’re currently feeling now.

Biopsychosocial Approach

End the Struggle of ChronicPain

Struggling with the stress and strain of chronic pain can be tough…

Whether it’s waking up feeling stiff or severe tension after walking, running, or playing, no one wants to spend each day dealing with the soreness that chronic pain brings.

While many people choose surgery or injections for pain relief, we offer non-surgical therapies which prevents patients from going under the knife.

Manage chronic without undergoing the risk of surgery…
