Overview

PERSONAL TREATMENT PLAN
At Universal Pain Management, you will receive a medical evaluation by a Board Certified Pain Specialist focused on determining the cause of your pain. If needed, additional diagnostic testing may be obtained. A treatment plan will be outlined and recommendations made to restore you back to maximum function. Frequently, patients improve significantly with a few simple procedures but for patients with more complicated pain problems, we will work with you to establish an effective multi-disciplinary treatment plan that will address your individual needs.

Your personal treatment plan may involve medical management, physical therapy, acupuncture, chiropractic, psychological therapy and minimally invasive pain control therapies. Minimally invasive techniques can give you effective pain relief so you can avoid major surgery.

Keep fit:
Regular physical exercise can help avoid injury and contribute to your physical and mental well being. Therapy and home exercise may be recommended as part of a pain control and pain prevention program. A good diet, regular exercise, avoidance of tobacco and normalization of poor sleep patterns will help reduce stress and lessen pain symptoms.

Stay active:
It is important to maintain activity, although you may need to avoid some activities entirely or do things a little differently to work around your pain. Focus on what you can achieve. Set realistic goals and follow your personal treatment plan.
