Although chronic pain is recognized as among the most difficult and complex conditions for doctors to manage, the treatment of chronic pain has significantly improved over the last decade. As your care team, we work together to make sense of a working diagnosis; be flexible as more information is gained and symptoms recur or change; educate and follow through with a plan that makes sense to everyone and coordinate with all your providers for long-term success and support. 

Our goal is to begin treatment at a conservative level. We offer the most advanced non-surgical treatment options before we recommend surgery. To have a better understanding of what we offer, please review our options below.

    Treatment options

    While medication is often effective in treating chronic pain, it’s not the only option available. Our pain specialists offer a much deeper approach, including additional therapies that can be used to enhance or even reduce medication use:
