  • Compression fractures of the spine
  • Sacroilitis (pain in the back where the lower spinal column joins the pelvis)
  • Spinal stenosis (narrowing in the vertebral column)
  • Failed back surgery syndrome (persistent pain following back surgery)
  • Sciatica (pain radiating down the legs)
  • Shingles (painful skin condition related to previous chicken pox infection)

Talk to Your Doctor

Pain conditions can arise for a number of reasons and it is best to have your primary care doctor evaluate you first to determine if specialized pain treatment is right for you. If your doctor thinks we can help, they should send us a referral, and we will contact you to make an appointment to see us. Our primary goal will be to help you manage your pain so you can live a fuller, more productive life. If you are currently taking opioid (morphine-like) pain medications (e.g. Vicodin, Lortab, Percocet), please be sure to arrange for refills from the physician who first prescribed it for you. The doctors at The Pain Center will not normally refill prescriptions written by another physician.
