David Robago

As the Medical Director of SHOW, David Rabago's role is to provide medical oversight to all SHOW related outreach and data collection, and to provide a formal medical perspective in SHOW leadership activities.

His research interests focus on two essential elements of primary care, reducing the use of unnecessary antibiotics, and exploring non-opioid therapies for chronic pain. This has led to his two areas of clinical investigation, the study of nasal saline irrigation for upper respiratory conditions, and the study of regenerative injection therapy, including prolotherapy, for chronic musculoskeletal pain.
