Pain & Injuries

Here to support your health and well-being.

When in pain, many people are prescribed opiods, offered surgery, or given steroid injections. But these approaches have dangers and limitations: drugs are responsible for thousands of deaths each year, surgery brings serious risks, and results from steroid treatments are mixed.

We see a new path forward: pain relief that is holistic, patient-centered, and collaborative.

Underlying our approach is the fundamental idea that your body wants — and knows — how to heal from pain. Unlike medications or surgery, which can be expensive and scary, our first-line techniques stimulate the repair of damaged tissues and muscles, triggering a healing response to pain.

Our model looks at your whole self, including past injuries, current activity level, and emotional state to understand how we can ease your pain. We help you connect the dots: For example, we know that there is a neurological connection between pain and depression, so we don’t treat them as two separate conditions, but part of a larger picture of your overall health. Rather than simply treating your symptoms or fighting disease, we aim a laser-like focus on creating wellness through addressing the underlying causes that got you into pain.


Hundreds of patients, including professional athletes, dancers, and performers, have found pain relief within our doors. Many come because they fear the effects of surgery or strong drugs. Others seek us out because what they are doing, such as physical therapy, has stopped working.

Pain is often accompanied by fear. As experienced medical professionals at the cutting-edge of pain research, you are in safe and capable hands. When you know that we’ll be using low-risk approaches that are highly effective, you can feel comfortable and at ease. When the body relaxes, the healing begins.
