Restoration of Function

I design an individual treatment plan for every patient, based on their diagnosis, symptoms, past history, age, general state of health, fitness, limitations, and special needs. Relieving their pain is a primary goal of every treatment plan, but helping restore the person to full, comfortable functioning, as much as possible, is also at the top of the list. The entire health care industry is now focused on restoration of function---what can the patient DO or do better as a result of treatment?---and this is important to verify to insurance companies.
