Medical Services for everyone

Treating the Whole Person

The best treatment for pain is to eliminate the underlying cause. Sometimes this is not possible and treatment must concentrate on the symptom and its effects. A customized plan helps each patient learn to utilize medications more effectively and practice techniques that can increase coping skills and promote a return to a more normal lifestyle. The goal of our multi-disciplinary approach is to:

  • Manage the pain through medication trials and/or nerve block procedures.
  • Strengthen the body with a wide variety of physical rehabilitation techniques.
  • Empower the patient’s spirit with psychological help for dealing with the devastating consequences of chronic pain.

The Pain Management Medical Center is a private practice facility. Our physicians participate in a number of managed health care programs. As specialists in job-related injuries, our health professionals work with patients to obtain authorization for treatment from Worker’s Compensation or private insurance carriers.

Non-Opioid Therapy

Chronic pain, which can be caused by many medical conditions and syndromes with different pathophysiologies, is an important and common medical concern worldwide. In the United States, pain is the most common complaint that leads patients to seek medical care. Although opioid use for acute/postsurgical pain and for palliative care is accepted in the United States, controversy continues among pain practitioners concerning the use of opioids for the treatment of chronic pain. More recently, this controversy has resurfaced, in part through press and media reports of opioid medication abuse and alleged practitioner misconduct.

Implantable Therapies

Pain Medicine Associates offers services for patients with difficult to manage chronic pain. You may need a referral by your family doctor or specialist. You will have an assessment by a pain specialist for advanced interventional procedures. Spinal Cord Stimulation (also known as Neurostimulation Therapy) and drug delivery therapy (“pain pump”) are FDA-approved treatment options that have helped thousands of people manage their chronic pain.

Opioid Therapy

Opioids can be taken safely for pain relief. For safety reasons, we refill opioid medications during the office visit. All prescribed medications will be electronically faxed to your local pharmacy. We have a monitoring program to test the medications that are being prescribed to you. For us to safely provide opioid therapy to our community, we must uphold the highest standard of care. Online prescription monitoring is maintained in this office on a regular basis. The following brochure links will review the potential risks and benefits of opioid therapy, and what you can expect once you start taking an opioid medication.

Interventional Procedures

Pain Medicine Associates specializes in minimally invasive procedures. We work closely with other disciplines including spine specialists, orthopedic surgeons, physiatrists, occupational therapy, physical therapy, acupuncture, and clinical psychology to provide multidisciplinary care for patients with complex pain problems.

After undergoing an interventional procedure or injection, completing the following form will help the pain specialist determine the proper treatment plan.
