Patient Centered Pain Management
Program Goals
  • Opioid reduction for patients with chronic non-malignant pain using exercise, manual therapy and cognitive behavioral approaches to treating low back pain.
  • Recognizing that doing less can be a better option than aggressive interventions.
Who can benefit from treatment?
ANY PATIENT WITH:
LONG TERM DISABILITY
or who have been off work for more than 4 weeks Over two weeks of opioids at doses higher than 50 MME/day
DIMINISHED OR NO RELIEF WHEN USING OPIOIDS
SIGNS OF INCIPIENT DEPENDENCE
or who you are concerned will develop a tolerance
PATIENTS WHO DESIRE TO CHANGE AND IMPROVE
This includes but is not limited to patients with:
  • Muscle Pain
  • Bone Pain
  • Joint Pain
  • Limb pain
  • Low back and neck pain
  • Post-surgical pain (laminectomy, fusion, fractures, and others)
  • Fibromyalgia Chronic Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS I & II, formerly RSD)
The acute pain treatments (such as medications, injections, surgeries, standard therapies) are not as effective in treating these patients.
Patient Centered Pain Management is staffed by board certified, non-interventional PM&R physicians who are experts in pain management partnered with physical therapists skilled in treating pain.

A group of independent, non-interventional pain specialists coming together to treat pain in a better way. Helping patients with persistent, chronic pain to manage that pain and get back to a normal life. Focusing providers’ awareness of patients’ function by systemically quantifying patients functional deficits throughout their healthcare journey.
