Conditions We Treat
Chronic pain is pain that lasts longer than six months and that you experience most days. Chronic pain may start as acute pain, but it continues long after the injury or event occurred, healed, or resolved.
Chronic pain can range from mild to severe, and is associated with issues such as:
- Back pain
- Bone pain
- Cancer (after treatment)
- Circulation problems
- Fibromyalgia (condition causing musculoskeletal pain throughout the body)
- Joint pain
- Muscle pain
- Nerve pain
- Visceral pain (internal, often vague pain that occurs in your abdomen, chest, pelvis, or intestines)
Acute pain is pain that starts suddenly and only lasts for a short time (from minutes up to two months). This type of pain is usually caused by a specific event or injury, such as:
- Broken bone
- Burn or cut
- Car crash or other type of accident
- Dental work
- Fall or other injury
- Labor and childbirth
What to Expect on Your First Visit
The initial visit will be a consultation to assess and develop the best treatment plan tailored to your individual needs. You can expect to try several modalities of treatment such as topical creams, physical therapy, as well as ordering additional tests such as MRIs or CTs.
