Mission and Philosophy
Dr. Worwags' mission is a holistic approach to optimize her patients' function and well being regardless of illness, injury or pain condition. Her philosophy is that a patient is foremost a person with her or his own unique physical and psycho-emotional make-up. This make-up helps define one's strengths and weaknesses, propensity for breakdown, level of healthcare engagement, preferences in treatment options, belief systems and ability to access one's own healing capacity. Dr. Worwag believes that a patient's function is as important as the illness, or injury itself.
