Leading-edge treatment options

Our physicians can help you explore the latest and greatest treatment options, including:

Compassionate effective diagnosis

We provide diagnoses that help you understand your condition, as well as the treatment resources and options to manage it. Most importantly, our team of physiatrists is committed to treating you as a whole person, not simply a set of symptoms.

Helpful collaboration

If you need other services, such as a physical therapist or athletic trainer, we will supervise and coordinate with other healthcare professionals to create a specially designed treatment program to fit your needs.

What you can expect

We strive to begin treatment as soon as possible after your initial consult. Our main goal is to help you effectively manage your pain and improve function as much as possible. As part of your diagnosis and treatment, you can expect:

  • A thorough conversation about the pain and symptoms you’re experiencing and your treatment history
  • A physical exam
  • The use and interpretation of diagnostic imaging
  • Comprehensive non-surgical treatment (therapies, medicine and intervention)
  • Efficient internal referrals to surgical services and all therapy types
