EXPERT DIAGNOSIS

The First Step to stop pain in the foot, ankle and lower leg…

A diagnosis is a crucial, yet often disregarded piece of the puzzle and without one it is often an uphill battle with no clear path for total resolution of your problem.

Without a specific diagnosis, treatment tends to be general rather than specifically targeted to your problem. A comprehensive plan to resolve your pain can be best formulated when the diagnosis is clear.
