Individually tailored treatment for acute and chronic pain

Advanced techniques

Many of the techniques and needle guidance technology we employ were not available 10 years ago and provide an excellent alternative to surgery.

Skilled physicians

All our physicians have received post residency, fellowship training and are board-certified, making them some of the most skilled and highly trained physicians in their field.

By using integrative techniques, cutting-edge technology and evidence-based medicine, Center for Interdisciplinary Spine assembles tailored options to manage pain.

Understanding the treatment of pain

Pain is a symptom of either an acute or chronic medical condition that has the potential to significantly obstruct the lives of those it afflicts. The majority of pain experienced is considered ‘acute,’ which usually fades away over a short period of time with only a simple treatment. However, when pain persists or progresses over a long period of time it is considered ‘chronic.’ Although invasive surgery is a viable solution for some plagued by chronic pain, most, if not all, can receive considerable pain relief without surgery.

With the ongoing introduction of new and improved diagnostic tools, we continually advance our understanding of pain and the most effective course of treatment. Armed with innovative techniques, we treat a variety of conditions that are the cause of acute and/or chronic pain.
