Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Meredith "Meet Dr. Christopher MeredithMy Philosophy

The approach to patients suffering from spinal and peripheral nerve conditions should be an all encompassing one. I like to take the time to both listen and understand the symptoms patients are experiencing so that we can work together for the most effective, least invasive solutions possible. This may result in referrals for complimentary care such as physical therapy, pool therapy, chiropractic care, massage, acupuncture and regenerative medicine etc... Ultimately, my philosophy for treating pain is to help find the most direct path to pain relief for the patient using the most minimally invasive means possible. "
