What is “Medical Arts”?
Medical Arts is the practice of applying a unique, multi-disciplinary model consisting of pain treatment, psychology, physical therapy and a fellowship trained physician to holistically treat pained conditions in the body. Put more simply, it’s the art of combining different therapeutic methods to assist the body’s natural healing process both mentally and physically.
