Spine and Chronic Pain Management

Solutions and Treatment for Chronic Pain

Chronic pain is in an extremely complex and poorly understood medical problem. Because pain has a multi-faceted impact on individuals, Shepherd Spine and Pain Institute believes in taking a comprehensive treatment approach to manage pain. Our practice model is geared towards treating both the physical and emotional components of pain. This model helps our patients restore and maintain function and improve their quality of life.

We use the latest imaging technology to establish a precise diagnosis and ensure pain is treated at the source. This lets our pain specialists create a comprehensive rehabilitation plan and ensure the best possible opportunity for long-term improvement.
