We apply better methods for chronic pain management:
Chronic, or lasting pain, affects every aspect of people’s lives reducing the quality of life. Without chronic pain management it is not possible to fully work, move about or enjoy life. Sudden pain that comes from an illness or injury can be just as disruptive and devastating.
Chronic pain management can complement the treatment of several conditions, including:
- Low back pain
- Neck pain
- Sickle cell disease
Chronic pain management goals:
- Increased physical function
- Decreased reliance on medication
- Return to work and daily activities
Non-narcotic approach to chronic pain management:
Our Orthopedic Surgeon uses a non-narcotic approach to help patients control their pain without the risk of addiction. Non-medication treatments in our center mainly include joint injections. We believe that non-narcotic pain management medications are the safest form of pain management for patients.
These methods are combined with physical therapy, exercise, counseling and other kinds of treatment, to eliminate or minimize the use of narcotics. This helps avoid some of the side effects that make it so difficult for each patient to enjoy a normal life.
Method of appointment
Please make sure the referrals have to be done through your Family Physician. If you do not have a family physician, we do have a family physician accepting new patients.
