Chronic pain affects as many as one in ten adults. It can be caused by a number of things, though the most common conditions associated with chronic pain are back injuries, headaches, and joint pain. Chronic pain can also be caused by diseases or disorders, such as Complex Regional Pain Syndrome and nerve damage.
Dr. Castillo believes in treating chronic pain by treating the patient as the whole; from treating the pain itself as well as the underlying conditions. He creates a comprehensive and individualized treatment program for each patient. Listening to each patient’s individual story, and not just treating pain based their X-rays. Patient treatments are modified and adjusted according to the progress of each patient to help them recover and reach their health goals.
