We Understand Chronic Pain
Chronic pain is often defined as any pain lasting more than 12 weeks. Whereas acute pain is a normal sensation that alerts us to possible injury, chronic pain is very different. Chronic pain persists—often for months or even longer, well after the initial injury. Chronic pain may arise from an initial injury, such as a back sprain, or there may be an ongoing cause, such as illness. However, there may also be no clear cause. Other health problems, such as fatigue, sleep disturbance, decreased appetite, and mood changes, often accompany chronic pain. Chronic pain may limit a person’s movements, which can reduce flexibility, strength, and stamina. This difficulty in carrying out important and enjoyable activities can lead to disability and despair.

We also reach out to all of your current physicians and care providers and get a complete understanding of the history of your treatment.
2. Customize: We create a treatment plan unique to you that will maximize your likelihood of managing your chronic pain .
3. Coordinate: We work closely with all of your other care providers to make sure we are getting you the maximum possible results and so that everyone (including your physician) stay on the same page
