Why Pain Management?

More than 100 million Americans suffer from chronic pain according to a report from the Institute of Medicine (IOM). The Goal of pain management is to return a person to the highest level of function and independence possible while improving the overall quality of life. Chronic Pain can interfere with the simplest tasks in everyday life. Things as basic as dressing and putting on shoes can be a major task and often wear a person out before they even get moving due to the pain level it causes. Most chronic pain is stemmed from the spine and when treated can give people back new freedom and enjoyment of the things they love most.
