Sometimes it is a lot, and some time it is not.
When you have pain, it can be to reduce your pain.
My job is to guide you through the process of your problem.
That always means helping to figure out what your problem is. I appreciate that your problem is big enough for you to seek help. You want to know what is causing all this craziness.
After we know what your problem is, we want to do the most important things in the correct order to fix them.
This usually means some amount of treatment to improve your flexibility and reduce your pain.
