The Pain Center has many different types of programs and therapies. We don’t offer one-size-fits-all treatments. Our approach is centered on your goals and progress. Here are some examples of our pain management techniques and services:

Pain Program

In this 10-week, multi-disciplinary program we focus on restoring you to the highest possible level of function while managing your chronic pain. Treatment typically occurs 2-3 times per week in a supportive yet challenging environment staffed by multiple clinicians. As we encourage an increase in physical activity we also teach strategies for coping with pain and dealing with flare-ups.

Headache Program

We identify the triggers that cause or exacerbate your headaches and then use medicine, physical therapy and psychology to address them. This 10-week program teaches pain and stress-management skills to improve your quality of life and maximize your ability to function.

Fibromyalgia Program

We understand that pain isn’t the only debilitating factor for those who struggle with fibromyalgia. Fatigue, stress and other symptoms also may affect your quality of life. Our 10-week program addresses your special needs so you can return to living a full and productive life.

Pain & Health Psychology

Physical and emotional health are closely linked. Our medical psychologists use Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) to identify your priorities and then help you manage your pain so you can enjoy your life to the fullest extent possible. We also teach skills to overcome barriers such as depression, anxiety and pain.

Biofeedback

Stress and tension contribute greatly to headaches and chronic pain. Using biofeedback technology, we can monitor your levels of stress and tension and then teach you ways to regulate the triggers. Relaxation techniques promote healing, improve sleep and take the edge off pain by reducing muscle tension and improving circulation.

Physical Therapy

Our physical therapists understand the difference between acute pain and chronic pain. They know when to encourage you to do more and when to advise you to pace your activity. And if you don’t need a complete round of physical therapy, we also can teach you stretching techniques, posture corrections and other ways to alleviate your pain.
