Are you suffering from Pain?

Approximately, ninety percent of all illnesses and injuries are first noticed because of the experience of pain. Living in pain is not necessarily something that should be considered a natural or expected part of illness or aging. It is a medical condition that can be treated, returning you to your normal, active lifestyle.

The care we offer after a thorough history, physical examination, and decision making process is highly specialized and can often be provided in conjunction with our patients' regular doctors, complimenting ongoing medical care.

 

Don't let pain control your life!

Our clinic is a total center for pain management dedicated exclusively to the relief of acute and chronic pain.

Our doctors treat many types of pain, including: musculoskeletal pain, head pain, neck pain, mid back pain, low back pain, abdominal pain, arm pain, and leg pain arising from trauma, automobile accidents, occupational injuries, sports-related injuries, and disease related pain, such as cancer.

We conduct a total evaluation and customize each patient's treatment. This may include a combination of injection therapy, medical management and physical therapy or massage therapy, depending on the patient's needs.

In many cases, we can eliminate or decrease pain to a tolerable level, which in turn improves patient's lives.

The goal at our office is to educate the patient, his or her health care providers, and insurance companies to access these positive, state of the art, diagnostic, therapeutic, medical options and make them available to patients in need.

There is no room for guesswork when it comes to effective pain management. An accurate diagnosis must precede precise treatment.
