In addition, Dr. Mora specializes in evaluating and treating stroke patients, personal injuries, work-related injuries, arthritis, low back pain, neck pain, and neuropathic pain.

Dr. Mora believes in the philosophy of using a multidisciplinary treatment approach. Furthermore, if the patient does not have an emergent need for surgery, he adapts a step-wise treatment algorithm that begins with conservative treatments prior to more invasive therapeutic options. With his multidisciplinary approach, he often utilizes a network of evaluations from acupuncturists, chiropractors, neurologists, psychiatrists, rheumatologists, interventional pain management, orthopedic and neurosurgeons, amongst others.

Dr. Mora’s multidisciplinary treatment approach has proven to help regain and maximize patients physical functions, alleviate acute and or chronic pain originating from injury or degenerative conditions, and most important, helping patients to better understand their illness, thus improving the patient’s ability to manage and take control of their health.
