Where does Medical Pain Management fit in?

Unlike most chiropractic and physical therapy clinics, Chicago Spine and Sports is unique in offering medical pain management as part of our integrated treatment approach. Many patients suffer from acute inflammation or chemically-mediated pain that requires medical interventions to alleviate their symptoms. Other patients may not respond favorably to conservative care in which case injections or medications may be warranted. In either case, our goal for patients is to utilize surgery as a last resort and exhaust all options prior to undergoing any invasive procedures. Through our customized, evidence-based assessment we are able to classify patients and direct them towards the proper treatment that best fits their needs.
