Pain Management

Physiatrists have expertise in the management of pain through a variety of methods. This may include prescription of appropriate analgesic, anti-inflammatory, and muscle relaxant medications. We discourage the use of narcotics and other addictive medications.

These medications may be used adjunctively with appropriate physical therapy treatments, soft tissue injections, exercise programs, braces, and other assistive and/or orthotic devices for ambulation.

All treatments are individualized for the patient’s personal medical needs.

Dr. Kanner will correspond with and coordinate treatment with other physicians involved in the care of the patient in pain.
