The National Institutes of Health reports that pain affects more Americans than diabetes, heart disease and cancer combined. Pain can be a chronic disease, a barrier to treatment for other issues, and/or can occur alongside other diseases and conditions such as depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, and traumatic brain injury. The diversity of pain conditions requires knowledge of a diversity of current research and treatment approaches.
Compass providers are aware of the stigma that can sometimes be associated with chronic pain. Often the sufferer looks “normal” or “healthy” on the outside, while feeling incapacitated by pain on the inside. We provide compassionate therapeutic services for those struggling with pain issues.
Compass also provides evaluation services for individuals considering an implantable pain control device, such as a spinal cord stimulator or pump. We can also evaluate for risks associated with opioid medication usage.
