Philosophy

Pain is an unpleasant sensory and emotional experience. Physical pain is often generated by tissue damage. As a doctor, it is my duty to become more sensitive to patient’s pain and to dedicate my time helping people to live productively despite pain. My goal is to reduce the pain that my patient’s feel and restore vitality to their life. I want you to feel happy and remain functional and productive as you were before the pain began. However, accomplishing this requires a pyschological and a physical approach.


Pain is the most prominent member in the class of perceptions known as bodily sensations. Bodily sensations such as pain can provide a powerful warning of damage to soft tissue or bone. Pain management focuses on determining the cause of pain and then utilizing traditional and alternative approaches to decrease and hopefully eliminate the pain. Hence, many individuals believe that physical pain is specific to body parts rather than it being our brain’s mechanism to prevent further damage to our body. This paradox is one of the main reasons why philosophers are especially interested in pain.




In my many years of experience, I have seen pain take control and reduce the quality of many lives. I understand that pain is excruciatingly real and I have always striven to find the best and most personal solution for the individuals who suffer from it. Together, my patient’s and I attempt to create a diet, exercise plan and a customized life style that works for them. A great diet and the right exercises can reduce the pain that plagues many people. I hope this booklet helps you understand and treat your arthritis pains or other chronic pain condition effectively.
