Non-Surgical Pain Management Options
If you suffer from chronic, debilitating pain, you may be considering surgery to help you get some relief. But, surgery is risky and expensive, and may not actually correct the cause of your pain.
For those who experience frequent pain and don't want to have surgery, the physiatrists at the Centers for Advanced Orthopaedics - MMI Division, can help find ways to reduce pain and swelling in the most minimally invasive method possible.
