Are you in pain? Millions of Americans experience pain due to an accident, chronic illness, or as a side effect of treatment. At Crisp, we strive to help our patients find relief via physician therapy, medication, or various combinations of the two. Chronic pain can be debilitating, and we want you to be living a life of optimal health and relief.

Living with pain is a way of life for many people, and maintaining a full and active life may seem impossible. If you suffer from chronic pain, it can wear you down physically, mentally, and emotionally over time. There are, however, measures you can take to help manage your pain and return to activities that may be missing in your daily routine. We are here to help bring enjoyment back to your life with fulfillment for you through family, friends, and your chosen vocation.

Chronic pain is any pain that continues for more than six months and is often difficult to manage without specialist care. Ask your provider about a referral.

Working with you and using various measurements, interventions, and strategies for self-management, our pain management specialists, offer a complete pain management program including assessment, treatment, communication, education, and follow-up.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is chronic pain? How do I seek treatment?

Chronic pain is any pain that continues for more than 3-6 months. Your primary care physician or other specialists may refer you when it is felt that pain management will benefit you. Referrals are not required during COVID-19 National Emergency. Acute pain may also be seen for treatment but will necessitate a Provider referral.

What are the treatment options?

There are numerous treatment options, depending on your specific pain source and location. Treatment may include injection therapy, medication management, spinal cord stimulation, or intrathecal pump therapy. Other options include diagnostic injections such as discograms and selective nerve root blocks. We may also refer you for physical therapy, surgical consultation, and/or TENS therapy (transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation).

With injection therapies, precision-guided medication delivery targets nerves in your body using various types of medications. Other treatments utilize heat or electrical stimulation to reduce pain or “block” pain signals.

  • Epidural injections (in all areas of the spine): the use of anesthetic and/or steroid medications in the epidural space of your spine to relieve pain or diagnose a condition.
  • Nerve root and medial branch blocks: Injections are used to determine if a specific spinal nerve root or joint is the source of your pain. These injections can also be used to reduce inflammation and pain. Normally, this treatment is administered as a series of injections.
  • Rhizotomy: This procedure blocks pain signals by using a heated electrode applied to specific nerves that carry pain signals to the brain. Rhizotomy usually relieves pain from four months to two years.
  • Discography: We look into the spine’s discs to determine if they are the source of your pain. The dye is injected into one or more discs and examined.
  • Spinal cord stimulation: Electrical impulses are used to block the pain from being perceived in the brain.
