"The greatest evil is physical pain" - Saint Augustine

Pain management is a holistic approach to decrease the chronic disabling pain while returning the patient to a better functional level. It involves evaluating a patient with different questionnaires, a thorough physical exam and determining which nerve blocks are needed over a period of time. Patients are also sent for physical/occupational therapy. Some cases are sent for psychological/psychiatric evaluations or chiropractic treatments as needed.
