CEO and Medical Director of DBC International.
The mission of DBC International is to develop and make available evidence based treatment and rehabilitation methods for musculoskeletal disorders. The severity of acute musculoskeletal pain tends to diminish if you remain physically active. Recurrent pain episodes sometimes induce functional deficits associated with inactivity, and the deficits in turn may cause further discomfort. In this way episodes of acute pain can lead to a chronic problem.
