CPS, formed in 2005, is a group of experienced physicians and staff dedicated to identifying and treating chronic pain.
Pain management, also called pain medicine, is a type of specialized medical care designed to minimize the impact of surgical pain or chronic pain. Chronic pain, in particular, can be difficult to control. It can sometimes be impossible to cure. Pain management treatment can help reduce pain, allowing patients to enjoy a better quality of life.
In conjunction with office visits, services may include medication management, injections and procedures. CPS assists patients with short-term needs as well as those seeking a more permanent pain management solution, evaluating each patient individually, supporting an overall health and wellness approach which may include options such as physical therapy, a diet and nutrition plan or a mental wellness program.
