Pain management is important for ongoing pain control, especially if you suffer with long-term or chronic pain. Interventional pain management is a "discipline of medicine devoted to the diagnosis and treatment of pain related disorders." Interventional pain medicine utilizes a multidisciplinary approach, in which a team of health care professionals (orthopedic surgeon, spine surgeon, neuro surgeon, neurologist, acupuncturist and physical therapist) works together, to provide a full range of treatments and services for patients suffering from chronic and/or acute pain.
As the best, and often last, resort for patients diagnosed with chronic or long-term pain, our goal is to relieve, reduce, or manage pain and improve a patient’s overall quality of life through minimally invasive techniques specifically designed to diagnose and treat painful conditions. WeCare Medical Specialty Group also strives to help patients return to their everyday activities quickly and without heavy reliance on medications.
