At OAK Orthopedics, our pain management specialists are the leading experts in caring for those suffering from acute and chronic pain.

Pain management is a multidisciplinary branch of medicine focused on diagnosing the source of musculoskeletal pain and employing treatments to effectively reduce or alleviate acute or chronic pain.

Our pain management specialists at OAK Orthopedics are dedicated to helping patients who suffer ongoing pain and discomfort from conditions such as chronic low back pain, chronic muscle pain, shingles, sciatica, complex regional pain syndrome, and various musculoskeletal conditions.

The practice of pain management employs a wide range of treatment methods for chronic pain, because the pain experienced can vary from mild to excruciating, episodic to continuous, and be inconvenient to completely incapacitating.

Pain has many forms and classifications—from mild to severe, sharp to dull, sporadic to perpetual. Because pain can be generated from any number of injuries and/or conditions, pain management specialists employ a wide range of treatment methods. Therefore, an accurate diagnosis of the source of your pain is an imperative prerequisite to determining a course of treatment.

It may be time to seek specialized treatment from a pain management provider if you are suffering from any of the following symptoms:

  • Persistent or worsening pain localized to a specific region of the body
  • Fatigue or a constant or continual need for rest
  • Withdrawal from activity
  • Changes in mood, such as depression and anxiety
  • Disability

Our pain management doctors at OAK Orthopedics understand that chronic pain forces you to succumb to a restricted, inactive lifestyle and can significantly impact your quality of life. That’s why our pain management specialists are passionate about working with you to thoroughly assess, accurately diagnose, and effectively treat your chronic pain, so you can get back to living an active lifestyle.
