Physicians Specializing in the Treatment of Acute and Chronic Pain Management
Diminishing Pain One Patient at a Time Working Together to Return Patients to a Better Quality of Life
Through a proper diagnostic evaluation and multi-modality treatment planning, help for chronic pain patients can be obtained. Our program uses a multidisciplinary approach to help patients reduce and learn to cope with their pain. The pain program consists of physicians, nurses, medical assistants and ancillary staff who are trained pain management professionals and deal with acute and chronic pain routinely. Following a comprehensive evaluation, this team develops a treatment plan and sets personal goals that address each individuals pain problem. Once this is complete, a member of the treatment team meets with the patient to review the treatment plan and start the road to recovery. (The physician performs non-invasive and/or interventional treatment techniques as needed.)
A chief complaint of pain sufferers is the feeling of not being themselves as a result of the pain. Psychological effects are always a part of the pain problem. Many patients with pain experience feelings of anger, depression, hopelessness or fear. Information on behavioral therapies including relaxation techniques, coping mechanisms, biofeedback, yoga, and stress management may be provided. Spiritual healing can play an important role in many patients' lives and is also encouraged.
