Medical Management of Chronic Pain

body1Management of chronic pain in patients with multiple problems is complex, usually requiring specific medical interventions, simultaneous psychological treatment, and physical therapy. At the Ramos Center for Interventional and Functional Pain Medicine, we take a multi-modality approach to provide the most effective treatment program. We believe that rehabilitation through cognitive, behavioral and physical treatments can restore function and often lessens the need for medications and/or more invasive procedures.

At the Ramos Center, treatment of chronic pain is tailored for each individual patient. Each patient is carefully screened and tested prior to receiving treatment. Our objective is aimed at interruption of reinforcement of the pain behavior and modulation of the pain response. The goals of treatment are realistic and focused on restoration of normal function (minimal disability) and better quality of life. We strive for reduction of medication usage and prevention of relapse of chronic symptoms.
