This content was provided by Dr. Morales "I try to identify the main cause of a patient's musculoskeletal pain as accurately as possible in order to offer all appropriate treatment options. It is very important to match the best treatment with the patient's individual circumstances so that the most optimal outcome can be achieved. One treatment does not fit all patients with a given diagnosis. Surgical treatment will often be the last treatment option in many cases."
