Pain has the ability to affect our lives in so many ways. It can affect our daily activities, our temperament, and so much more. But you don’t have to simply endure it. There are treatments that may help diminish or even stop the pain and allow you to live a normal life.

He can work with patients experiencing both acute pain (lasting less than three months) and also chronic pain (lasting longer than three months).
