Pain medicine physicians are part of a rapidly growing specialty that takes a multidisciplinary, integrated approach to treating all types of pain. At CHRISTUS Trinity Mother Frances Neuroscience Institute, our patient care philosophy is guided by evidence-based, outcome-focused research and the understanding that chronic pain affects all aspects of an individual’s physical and psychological well-being.
Many patients come to us suffering from back and neck pain, painful joint or muscle conditions and nerve pain in the arms and legs. Each new patient undergoes a thorough evaluation and assessment that leads to a highly personalized plan of care. Because we incorporate therapies from several medical specialties, we typically recommend a combination of science-based therapies for each patient we treat.
Working closely with your care team
The Neuroscience Institute’s team of pain medicine specialists work closely with neurologists, neurosurgeons and physical medicine and rehabilitation specialists to provide care grounded in a clinically integrated approach to pain management. Throughout diagnosis and treatment, we work closely with our patients to identify the source of their pain and develop a personalized treatment plan to help them overcome the condition causing the pain and improve the quality of their lives.
Our team members are experts in the field of pain medicine. We use a methodical, approach to diagnosing and treating pain, reducing it in the most efficient way. State-of-the-art imaging techniques and diagnostic tools allow us to make accurate assessments. Treatments range from biofeedback and medication to interventional procedures that include implantable devices to control pain.
