Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Caballes "Dr. Caballes has a passion for providing his patients with a multifaceted approach to health aimed at preventing injury, maximizing performance, and achieving functional and sports-related goals.  His approach to patient care is based on combining all available modalities for musculoskeletal conditions including exercise, physical modalities, bracing, injections, and regenerative medicine. One of his special interests is diagnostic and therapeutic use of musculoskeletal ultrasound. His clinical repertoire of treatments focuses on continually balancing the patient's physical goals with optimal recovery needs. 

As a physiatrist in sports medicine, he believes in providing the best care for his patients by extending musculoskeletal care beyond the diagnosis in order to focus on functional assessment with the goal of understanding the impact on the patient's physical and daily activities.  "
