We provide each patient with a full evaluation to determine their options for both interventional and medical pain management treatment techniques. Our mission is to safely and effectively relieve patient’s pain and elevate their quality of
We go to great lengths to protect our patients from the significant risks that are associated with opioid therapy, which are also known as narcotic medications. We stringently follow DEA recommendations regarding prescribing opioid medications. Further, we only prescribe opioid medications if we determine that a patient’s pathology warrants their use, the patient satisfies specific criteria, and the patient has failed other, lower risk treatment options.
We do not prescribe high doses of opioid medications, as research continues to show that this regimen has much greater risks for patients, with few long-term benefits, as compared to lower doses.
Our knowledgeable providers are here to help you. We successfully treat all types of pain with our detailed treatment plans. Our treatments are safe, minimally-invasive, and clinically-proven to be highly effective. At Spine & Joint Pain Specialists, we are passionate about treating those who suffer from pain. We look forward to your visit.
