Pain Can’t Be Seen. How Is it Treated?

Millions of people live with chronic pain. They are our family members, co-workers, and friends. Often, they are suffering in silence. Many people living with chronic pain face significant obstacles, including difficulty with work.

We understand that chronic pain is not only a physical issue but an emotional one as well. Our goal is to create a patient-centered, multidisciplinary treatment plan unique to everyone’s needs. Our philosophy is to blend evidence-based medicine, innovative treatment, and compassion to meet each patient's individual goals. We strive to alleviate pain and maximize functional potential to allow patients to get back to their active lifestyles.

We believe in empowering you, the patient, to take control of your pain. We understand the importance of educating our patients on their conditions to have the tools to maintain the highest quality of life while avoiding future injuries.

Our focus is to achieve the best outcomes for chronic pain patients so they can live healthier, happier, and more fulfilling lives.

The Role of Painkillers in Pain Medicine

Pain medicine visits can help with long term medication management rather than primary care services, and are often helpful following injury-related surgeries and procedures. While potent pain medications such as narcotic painkillers can be beneficial short-term following a procedure or as apart of therapy, they can become habit-forming without strictly following your doctor’s instructions for proper use. A Pain Medicine doctor can help you fight addiction, withdrawals, and unpleasant symptoms associated with your pain and taking pain medication.
