My approach

 

 

 

I am a doctor who for many years has been interested in injuries to tendons, muscles, ligaments and the functioning of the musculoskeletal system in general. To cure these problems I use an innovative technique called Prolotherapy that allows the resolution of pain.

I help patients recover the correct functionality of the joints and movement  to try to prevent acute and chronic injuries and avoid resorting to surgery and / or loss of functional autonomy.
