Where is your PAIN?

Relief from acute or chronic pain is possible with Total Pain Care. Get started on the path to pain relief by telling us about your discomfort.

Back pain

Back

A common health problem for many Americans, acute or chronic back pain can make everyday tasks seem impossible and, if left untreated, can worsen over time.

Neck pain

Neck

Our necks experience much wear and tear, especially as we age. Neck muscles are particularly susceptible to being pulled or strained and can lead to acute or chronic pain.

Knee pain

Knee

The knee is made up of many ligaments, tendons, cartilage and bones. Each is likely to cause you pain if affected by injury, wear and tear, and pulled or torn ligaments and tendons.

Wrist pain

Shoulder

One of the most movable and potentially unstable joints in the body is the shoulder. This makes shoulder pain a common problem for many.

Joint pain

Joint

Joint pain occurs as a result of aging, injury or trauma and can increase with chronic conditions like arthritis. It most often occurs in the knee, hip and shoulder but can occur anywhere where bones come together.

Nerve pain

Nerve

When nerves in the central nervous system are injured or damaged, it can lead to chronic pain. Physical trauma or surgical procedures are often the cause of this debilitating condition.
