Ray is determined to deliver the most comprehensive care. This includes not only accurately diagnosing what is causing pain, but also identifying the reason it is injured. This typically involves identifying surrounding regions that are dysfunctional and contributing to the problem. Time and care will be taken to help relieve pain as well as solve any surrounding issue to prevent future injury. This can include muscle and joint mobilization, as well as muscular strength and endurance training to better support optimal movement.
