Living with chronic or acute neck and back pain can interrupt one’s ability to live the life they want to live. Even activities like driving, attending sporting events, and doing laundry can become extremely difficult if your body’s mobility, alignment, and stability are not functioning properly. The DMR Method treats the underlying condition through a clinically proven process where patients receive the right treatment at the right time. This collaborative, nonsurgical approach eliminates many of the body’s obstacles to healing and provides significant results in a short period of time.
The DMR Method is a spinal rehab program unlike any other. If you’ve tried other treatment programs and have been disappointed with the results, that’s even more reason to consider the DMR Method. It was created specifically because the other programs and plans of care weren’t providing patients with significant, lasting relief from their pain and symptoms.

Many individuals living with neck and back pain begin to think that surgery is their only option. After months, even years, of working toward wellness, participating in strengthening programs, and attending medical appointments with little long-term benefit, it’s natural to begin to think and feel like you’re out of options. But I’m here to tell you that you’re not.
When you tell your kids they are being a pain in the neck, you may not be exaggerating as much as you think. Bending to help your children eat, bathe, go the bathroom, get dressed, pick up their toys, color a photo, clean a scrape and search for monsters under their bed can take a toll on your body.
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.
The DMR Method is a proven, research-based system of evaluation and treatment for neck and back pain. It is an integrative three-step clinical process that combines the expertise of physical therapists, chiropractors, and medical doctors to identify and treat the source of pain to provide lasting relief – even when other treatments have failed.
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.
One of the undervalued components of healing is understanding. Many people facing disease and disability seek solutions and treatments without fully understanding their condition. The ability to understand and address all of the ways a condition causes pain and affects your quality of life comes with valuable benefits. 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.
The human body is a complex system of many interconnected parts. We have bones, muscle, tendons, organs, tissue, and other systems all working together, functioning as a single organism. Every component is important and responsible for its own set of functions.
