Dr. Decaria

In the US, therapeutic approaches to pain management range widely between conventional and complementary medical philosophies. You can easily find countless healthcare providers, websites, and books that promote an ‘integrative” or “wellness” approach to combine the two philosophies, however too often their underlying bias towards one discipline leads them to dismiss or ignore large categories of therapies that may still be of benefit to you. I have chosen to practice in a truly integrative fashion, utilizing the best of both eastern and western medicine. My goal is to teach patients how to live better and manage their pain by providing them the tools they need to heal.
In good health,
