A pain specialist is a physician with special training in evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment of pain disorders. As a patient, you can expect your first visit at JCMG to be a comprehensive exam in which the physician will develop an individualized treatment plan specific to the cause of your pain. JCMG pain specialists also recognized the growing problem of opioid dependency in our country and are taking steps to minimize the use of opioid treatment.
Our physicians believe in a multi-disciplinary approach to both chronic and acute pain. Interventional procedures in combination with conservative treatments are utilized. We work to reduce, minimize, or even eliminate opioid medications. We strive to improve not only the intensity of the pain symptoms but also your quality of life in order to help you live your life to its fullest.
