A specially trained pain management physician works with
patients and their primary care physicians to determine the source of pain and
to eliminate or decrease it. Our goal is to help manage a patient’s pain so that
it does not become overwhelming, giving him/her an improved quality of life.
Treatment for chronic pain can include medications. In some cases, an
injection may be recommended. Patients may also be referred to other types of
treatment, such as physical therapy.
