Chronic pain is one of the most common reasons patients seek medical care. It is estimated that over 116 million adults are affected by some type of chronic pain. Chronic pain is a significant public health problem. Unfortunately, pain often persists after an injury appears "healed" or after surgical repair in the seriously injured patient. Sometimes this pain can be effectively managed with medications, but in cases that can't other options for treatment exist.
Physician Injury Consultants can provide long term pain management as well as the most advanced implant therapies for pain control after injury. Follow the links below for more information.
