Her main passion is helping her patients reach outcomes that they didn’t believe were possible. These outcomes include: avoiding surgery, managing chronic pain, returning to working out or physical activity.
Dr. Mary Caromata uses a holistic approach in her practice. She addresses the injury itself and why it happened to prevent reoccurrence. She also understands that pain can be more than just in the muscle or joints, it can also influenced by stress, poor diet and lack of exercise. This holistic approach can assist in addressing the underlying conditions that may be exacerbating the pain, injury or dysfunction.
