What is Pain?
Chronic Pain is defined as pain that persist after 90 days.
PAIN is complicated and subjective. In general it is an unpleasant sensory and emotional experience primarily associated with tissue, bone or nerve damage More than 50 million Americans have chronic pain.
The components our approach includes:
1) Medical evaluations and medications
2) Exercise and massage therapy
3) Psychological evaluations, support and counseling
Our doctors and nurse practitioners examine each patient, review previous medical and diagnostic records, then determine what is the best medication regimen for each patient.
Goal: To obtain the best level of pain management with the least amount of medications, and to maintain the best quality of life possible.
To obtain pain relief and improve physical and psycho-social functioning.
To utilize other proven methods and modalities for pain control as part of a comprehensive, multidisciplinary approach to pain management.
What we offer our patients
1. Massage and exercise therapy. Our in-house massage therapist works one on one with our patients to facilitate muscle relaxation, treat trigger points, and help stretch muscles for increased pain management. Modalities such as TENS units, ultrasound, hot and cold packs are used.
2. Counseling. Chronic pain is hard enough to manage. Emotional pain only makes things worse. Our on site Psychologist works directly with our patients to help them cope with life and pain.
3. Medication Management. This is of course the mainstay of chronic pain management. Our professional staff will make sure the best regimen for you is prescribed.
We listen to you
In light of the epidemic of opioid misuse and diversion, we screen our patients with a background check. Don’t worry we never turn away a patient because of a background issue. We will, however, if there is an issue , use our in-house monitoring system we call TierII, or we may not treat with medications known to be diverted on the street for sale.
Drug screens will be required as a new patient and then randomly obtained throughout the year. The purpose of the screen is to identify that the medications prescribed are being taken and also to make sure other medications or illicit substances are not being taken. If any irregularities occur during a drug screen, a patient may be required to any one of the following. 1. Come in again in 2 weeks for another screen. 2. Be placed in our in- house high risk program called Tier II. Be discharged from practice pending an evaluation and recommendation to continue treatment by a certified addictionologist. 3.Be discharged completely from practice. The circumstances of the irregularity will determine which one of these courses of action be applied.
