Did you know?
Chronic pain is not like other serious medical conditions. Its causes can be difficult to diagnose with conventional medical tests.
The American Medical Association says that recurring pain is undertreated. The National Institute of Health indicates that 40 million Americans never treat their recurrent pain.
While each person’s experience of pain is specific to them, it is virtually never “only in your head.” The average patient with chronic pain suffers for more than 5 years before their pain is addressed.
Unrelieved pain is a better predictor for long-term disability than almost any other factor.
People are often scared to admit the extent of their suffering. However, those who stay silent generally fail to receive effective treatment.
Refusing to acknowledge your pain results in severe physiological and psychological outcomes that diminish your quality of life. Chronic pain leaves many of its victims solitary and discouraged.

What Are Your Office Hours?
Our office hours are as follows:
Monday – Thursday 10:00 am – 5:00 pm
What sets our practice apart from other pain management doctors?
Many pain physicians focus on epidural and spinal injections which are more complicated and more invasive. Our philosophy is to preserve such an option only as a last resort. What we do instead is initiate a muscle rehabilitation program using a simple lidocaine injection combined with shockwave therapy and Laser Therapy over the painful region to improve the outcomes.
How long will it take before I can start seeing improvement in my pain?
Most patients will see a great positive change in their condition within a period of 3 to 4 weeks. After this time period, you will be delighted with the positive transformation in your health. You can check our reviews online to directly hear from other patients who had the same problem in the past that you have now.
What do you recommend for treating musculoskeletal pain?
Musculoskeletal pain affects the bones, ligaments, tendons, and muscles. First, I conduct a thorough physical examination and inspect the patient’s medical history. This enables me to understand the root cause of the pain. Based on the severity of the pain, I may suggest Rehabilitative type therapies like cryotherapy and cold laser therapy. In some cases, I also prescribe certain medications for excessive swelling.
Is “Cold” Cryotherapy therapy effective for pain management?
Absolutely! If applied in the correct manner, Cryotherapy therapy can do wonders for your body, and not just help you with pain management. I have been an advocate for cold therapy for years. I know how it works, which parts of the body it affects, and more. So, I can say that cold therapy can be extremely beneficial for pain management. The extremely cold temperatures can reduce swelling and inflammation by numbing the irritating nerves.
Do your professionals understand Spanish?
Yes, all of our staff are proficient in Spanish.

What Types Of Pain Do You Treat?
What can I expect when I see my pain management doctor?
After completing a detailed history and a thorough physical exam, your pain management doctor may order additional tests such as radiographic images (including x-rays, MRIs, etc.) or blood tests. Chronic pain is a complex process that requires a combination of treatments in order to achieve the best results.
A multi-pronged treatment plan tailored to the individual patient will be discussed and initiated that may include medications, minimally-invasive procedures, and/or physical therapy. Pain management requires an active combined effort from both the individual suffering from chronic pain and the healthcare team.
When would I need to see a pain management doctor?
People develop pain for many reasons. Pain from recent surgery, injury, or medical illness is called acute pain. In many cases, this pain can be managed immediately and will usually get better in just a short time. For more serious pain, however, your primary care doctor may ask a pain management doctor to help manage your pain while you are healing.
Back or neck pain that persists beyond six weeks may require further evaluation to accurately and quickly diagnose the cause and implement an effective treatment plan. In general, earlier evaluation of the pain typically leads to greater diagnostic accuracy and faster relief.
If your pain persists after the healing process should be over, you might have what is called chronic pain. If the current treatment you are receiving stops working or your pain begins to get worse over time, your primary care doctor may suggest that you see a pain management doctor.
My pain gets worse at different times of the day, what should I do?
You might notice at times that you are in more pain than usual (such as at the end of a tiring day or as a result of certain activities). If you notice that certain activities contribute to your pain or that you feel worse at certain times of the day, medication can be taken prior to the activity (or time of day) to help prevent the pain from occurring. Always be sure to follow your doctor’s instructions.
