The health care professionals of the Center for Pain Management are dedicated to the diagnosis and treatment of acute, chronic, benign and cancer-related pain. Chronic pain is not a specific disease like asthma or diabetes, so isolating the specific cause of pain and starting appropriate treatment is not always simple. There are no clinical tests to verify the presence of pain or measure its intensity.
Through the broad training and experience of our staff, we are able to offer services to children as well as adults and treat many pain syndromes. Our patients who come to this Center have gone through diagnostic tests, MRIs, CAT scans and even surgery. The results of their tests often come back negative, but the pain is still there. We believe their pain is real, whatever the cause! Our aim is to treat the cause of pain and return our patients to their normal lifestyle.
We understand the complexity of our patient's pain and the suffering experienced by many individuals with persistent pain. Our pain team includes dedicated experts in pain medicine. If necessary, our patients are referred to other pain specialists. A multidisciplinary approach is very often warranted.
We work closely with our patient's referring physician, as well as their insurance carrier. In some cases, we are able to offer detailed medical assessments to help resolve confusion about your diagnosis, physical functioning and work status.
If you have chronic pain, you will benefit from our services. Please call us. Our courteous and professional staff is available to make an appointment for you and will answer any questions you may have.
