To be considered chronic pain, the pain must last for more than twelve weeks, or beyond the normal healing time for an injury. The initial cause may be related to but is not limited to medical issues, accidents or injuries.
Living with chronic pain makes it difficult to perform everyday tasks, concentrate or focus, sleep, and enjoy quality time with family and friends. Our dedicated pain management physicians offer a comprehensive consultation and diagnosis along with the creation of a customized treatment plan for each patient that is focused on reducing your level of pain and improving your quality of life.
