Dr. Castillo believes in treating pain by treating the patient as the whole. Including treating the source of pain itself, as well as the underlying conditions that could be aggravating the pain. He creates comprehensive and individualized treatment programs for each patient, since no two patients experience pain the same way. Dr. Castillo begins by listening to each patient’s individual story, and not just treating pain based on a patient’s X-rays. Patient treatments are modified and adjusted according to the progress of each patient to help them recover and reach their health goals. In addition to a treatment, therapy, or procedure Dr. Castillo also often recommends lifestyle changes and alternative therapies such as acupuncture to help relieve a patient’s pain.
