Our highly-trained physicians treat many types of pain. These include acute, visceral (from internal organs), cancer pain, headache, head and neck pain, spine pain, arm and leg pain, and neuropathic (nerve) pain.

Acute pain can begin suddenly, be mild or severe and last for anywhere from a few moments to three months. Typically, patients feel relief once the underlying cause of the pain has been treated.

Acute pain is usually associated with:

  • Broken bone
  • Burn 
  • Sprain
  • Surgical procedure

Our physicians provide effective and decisive treatments for patients with acute pain conditions to ensure that those conditions do not evolve into chronic pain.

Although there are several contributing factors that can result in abdominal pain, many instances of pain are not cause for serious concern, such as indigestion, constipation or gas.

While acute pain may be readily identified and treated, in many instances pain may persist beyond the expected time of healing and become chronic. Our pain management team has a profound understanding of these conditions, and will work with you to alleviate abdominal pain, whether it is from ischemic cause, such as pain from median arcuate ligament syndrome (MALS), adhesions of previous surgeries, cancer or others, including:

Arm and leg pain can occur for a variety of reasons, such as sports injuries, typical wear and tear, pregnancy, surgery, cancer, infections and more. Treating the pain, swelling and other symptoms that accompany these conditions is crucial to resuming daily activities. Our physicians aim to prevent progression of acute pain to chronic pain in your upper or lower extremities. Arm and leg pain can be an indication of a number of common conditions, such as the following:
For patients suffering from cancer, managing pain is essential for their continued comfort and treatment success. Cancer pain can result from the condition itself or can be a symptom associated with treating the disease, including surgery, chemotherapy and radiation. We offer a wide range of treatment options and advanced therapies to manage cancer-related pain.

Chronic pain is defined as persistent pain that can remain even after treating the underlying cause. Patients may continue to feel pain for years after healing. Chronic pain can be debilitating physically, and can also impact a person's mental and emotional well-being, creating feelings of stress, anxiety and depression. Common types of chronic pain can include:

  • Arthritis
  • Headaches
  • Nerve pain
  • Psychogenic pain

There are as many as 12 classifications of headaches, which can vary in their level of discomfort. Pain can range from a dull ache to a throbbing sensation, with some headaches even resulting in nausea, vomiting and blurred vision. Common causes of headaches include tension and stress, but they can also develop due to a variety of conditions:

  • Inflamed joints
  • Inflammation
  • Injury
  • Muscle strain
  • Pinched nerve

The neck, back and spine pain are all common diagnoses, and each area has numerous causes and contributing factors that can result in pain. Neck, back and spine pain can also be debilitating and can quickly disrupt patients' daily lives.

Neck pain can be acute or chronic and can occur from arthritis, poor posture or, in some cases, can also be an indication of a more serious condition. Common causes of neck pain include:

  • Degenerative disease
  • Disc herniation
  • Injury or trauma
  • Muscle strain
  • Pinched nerve
  • Tumors

Back pain is one of the most prevalent conditions, but determining the exact cause of back pain can be difficult since it can be triggered by anything from overuse and injury to smoking, obesity or disease. Additional causes of back pain include:

  • Arthritis
  • Herniated discs
  • Injury or trauma
  • Muscle strain 
  • Osteoporosis
  • Spinal tumors

Since the spinal cord runs the entire length of the back, spine pain is often associated with back and neck pain, but these conditions also result in spine pain:

  • Myelopathy 
  • Radiculopathy 
  • Scoliosis 
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Spinal tumors 
  • Spine compressions
  • Spondylosis

Nerve pain occurs when there is damage or irritation to one or more nerves in your body. This condition can result in severe shooting pain, burning, numbness, tingling or a combination of these sensations. There are a wide range of conditions that can lead to neuropathic pain:

  • Cancer 
  • Diabetes 
  • Herniated discs 
  • Infectious diseases
  • Inflammation of the nerve
  • Sciatica
  • Shingles
  • Surgical procedures
  • Trauma
Postsurgical pain is discomfort patients feel after undergoing a surgical operation. Pain can vary depending on the type of procedure that was performed. It is important to control pain after surgery to keep patients comfortable and promote a speedy recovery.
