The Team Approach to Pain Management

Chronic pain can affect someone’s entire life, but we can help with options that are less invasive and costly than traditional surgical ones. Our pain patients are evaluated by both a board-certified pain physician and a clinical pain psychologist. Depending on the individual’s pain history, a physical therapist with experience in the treatment of chronic pain may also be asked to see the patient.

Our interdisciplinary pain team develops a comprehensive treatment plan that may include appropriate minimally invasive procedures, individual psychotherapy, individual physical therapy; and/or participation in PRISM, our group cognitive behavioral program. Medication management assessments are performed upon request.
