If you find that you cannot safely control your pain with over-the-counter medications, or have failed to find relief from other treatments and practitioners, you should consider consulting with a pain management physician. For most patients, interventional pain management procedures can treat or reduce pain allowing the patient to regain function thereby improving their quality of life. This reflects our practice philosophy.
