Pain can come in varying degrees and affect nearly every part of the body. No matter what form it takes, it can be debilitating and negatively impact your quality of life. At NorthShore, we offer a variety of pain management services provided by experienced and knowledgeable pain specialists.
Our Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation physicians use their unique training to develop comprehensive treatment plans that include the management of acute pain. NorthShore physiatrists employ different non-surgical techniques, ranging from medication to injections to address individual patient needs.
In addition, our comprehensive Integrative Medicine Program offers complementary therapies to traditional Western medicine to achieve pain relief as well as promote healing and wellbeing. The program features a number of services including:
- integrative bodywork and massage
- therapeutic yoga and meditation
- herbal medicine counseling
