What would you do if only you didn’t have pain?
An estimated 70 million Americans suffer from chronic pain. Chronic pain is a major medical condition distinctly different from and more complex than acute pain. Whereas acute pain is a normal sensation triggered in the nervous system to alert the body to possible injury, chronic pain is a state in which pain persists, for many months or years, beyond the normal course required by healing. The effects, both economic and personal, associated with chronic pain can be significant. They include loss of income; debt from costly medical treatment; impaired mobility; and anxiety and depression. Our Pain-management specialists are medical professionals well-trained in the diagnosis and treatment of acute, sub-acute and chronic muscle and nerve pain. Board-certified in this specialty and employing the most advanced treatment techniques, our pain-management physicians work one-on-one with patients who suffer from chronic pain to determine the best treatment plan for relieving symptoms, and allowing resumption and enjoyment of everyday activities.
