PMP Statement of Philosophy 

Pain Management Partners, LLC, strives to provide excellent medical care in a friendly and supportive environment. Our goal is to achieve maximal improvement in medical, emotional and spiritual health for our patients. Our practice addresses symptoms of chronic conditions using an integrated, interdisciplinary, multidisciplinary care model. The basis of this model is the individual patient.

Studies show that passive treatment models rarely succeed when active effort is not applied. Patients must be actively involved in their own care, if not more so than their healthcare providers. Success is not measured solely by symptom improvement. Treatment success depends heavily on objective functional gains including quality-of-life measures.

Patient effort, as measured by participation and responsible choice, is the key to achieving self-management skills and pain symptom control. We can show the way, but only the patient can provide the motivation and perform the work.


PMP Code of Ethics and Business Practices

Pain Management Partners, LLC, is committed to marketplace ethics and meets the Better Business Bureau's Code of Business Practices. Pain Management Partners, LLC, maintains honest and reliable business practices. We make a pledge to be transparent, be responsive to customers, advertise honestly, honor promises and act with integrity.

Feature Article: Pain Prescriptions

Q: Why is it so difficult to get prescriptions for pain medicine?

A: Most people with chronic pain take their pain medicine only as prescribed. But the country’s "opioid epidemic" shows little sign of slowing. A high number of accidental overdoses occur daily, even when taken exactly as prescribed. Regulatory agencies, like the CDC, have issued guidelines calling for caution when prescribing opioids. Due to concerns for your safety, health care providers may suggest lower doses of opioids, alternative pain treatments, other analgesics, and advise against combining opioids with tranquilizers, sleeping pills, alcohol, cannabis/marijuana or other sedatives. At Pain Management Partners, we offer multidisciplinary options and effective alternatives for pain care.

Feature Article: Trigger Point Stretches

Trigger points are small areas of tightly knotted muscle and connective tissue that cause localized and referred pain. By injecting anesthetic medicine into these points, the muscle can relax so patients can gently stretch the tissue back to normal length, bringing lasting pain relief. Trigger points are known to cause or contribute to headaches, neck and jaw pain, low back pain, symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome and tennis elbow, and many kinds of joint pain, mistakenly ascribed to arthritis, tendonitis, bursitis or ligament injury. Trigger point injections are an effective treatment modality for inactivating trigger points and providing prompt relief of symptoms from myofascial pain syndrome.

These exercises can be done several times a day in conjunction with your treatment plan.
