Treatments for chronic pain

We understand that the source of pain can differ for each individual, which is why we offer a wide array of treatments, such as:

  • Medications—Medications can be used, mostly as a short-term solution, to relieve pain.
  • Nerve blocks—Nerve blocks are injections that are used to stop the nerve impulses that cause you to feel pain.
  • Physical therapy—Physical therapy uses a variety of exercises and programs designed to help patients safely return to their previous level of functioning before an accident, injury or illness.
  • Surgery—Surgery is a corrective procedure that can eliminate or improve the physical condition causing pain.
