How a Pain Management Specialist Can Help

A pain management specialist is a physician that has undergone special training to help patients with different types of pain. These professionals evaluate, diagnose, and treat a variety of different types of pain including acute pain, chronic pain, and pain from illnesses.

Our team at BackFit Health + Spine specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of pain-oriented disorders. Our experienced chiropractors and physical therapists work with patients to help control their pain, so they can feel more like their normal selves and live pain free. Our pain management doctors utilize a combination of physical medicine and rehabilitation to help you feel better and create an effective treatment plan to reduce, relieve, or manage your pain without surgery or prescription medication.

Since pain management specialists are concerned with improving the overall quality of life for their patients, they focus on a full body approach versus just one part of the body. Our team at BackFit Health + Spine focuses on reducing pain and improving the functionality of our patients, as well as educating them on how they can take charge of their own health with proper exercise, diet, and the use of helpful therapies and treatments to ease their pain.
