Our qualified pain management physicians and staff understand the need for an individualized pain management treatment plan and the proper use of medications to manage chronic pain conditions. We believe that no one should have to live in pain or be limited from having the life they once knew.

Did you know……

  • According to the American Medical Association, chronic pain is under  treated.  
  • The majority of people suffering with chronic pain have been  living with their pain for over 5 years, almost 6 days a week.  
  • People just like you are most often reluctant to report  their true pain level. Still, those who do report pain are most often under  treated.  
  • Too few health care professionals are adequately trained in  pain management and appropriate medications.  
  • Unrelieved pain has negative physiological and psychological effects that  impair your daily life.  
  • The American Pain Society emphasizesan individualized  pain-control plan, assessment and frequent reassessment, and the use of  medications to relieve pain.
