DMR Method: The Essence of Collaborative Care

Collaborative care has always been at the foundation of Williams Integracare Clinic. We've built our practice and our name by embracing what makes us different: our emphasis on looking at your injury from every angle while offering every possible solution. After all, you are a single person with physical, emotional, spiritual, and intellectual needs - all of which are affected by injury and worthy of attention. While most health care professionals insist on viewing your condition from their perspective only, we see things differently.

DMR Method: The Recovery Curve

The DMR Method's recovery curve is used to explain how the body recovers when it receives proper, timely treatment. The recovery curve was created after the clinical observation of thousands of patients following a predictable path throughout treatment. It's important for patients to move through each of the three phases of the recovery curve before discontinuing treatment. If treatment discontinues prematurely, your same symptoms, pains, and discomforts are likely to return.

Specifically, learning a condition's cause and impact is an important part of the recovery process. When patients understand their condition, they also understand the reasoning behind the steps in their recovery process, and they're more likely to follow their self-care program consistently.
