We are dedicated to employing safe and effective medication management methods in the treatment of acute or chronic pain to avoid side effects, addiction or invasive surgery.

  • Non-opioid Therapy includes medications Non Steroidal Anti Inflammatory (NSAIDS) drugs and Acetaminophen (Tylenol) which can be used for mild to moderate acute or chronic pain.

  • Opioid therapy is used for moderate to severe chronic pain. There are several short acting and long acting agents that can be used as treatment options. We also manage patients for long term opioid management with goal to reduce the risk of dependency.

  • Adjuvant Therapy are medications used along with pain medications to help manage moderate to severe chronic pain. These medications may include anticonvulsants, antidepressants, skeletal muscle relaxants, topical agents and others; with most approved by FDA for chronic pain treatment and others with off label use.
