Pain impacts all aspects of life, from physical function to psychological well-being to social interaction. Similarly, both the underlying causes and the treatments of pain require the combination of the physical, social and psychological. I work to recognize and understand the patient’s experience to connect with them and develop a targeted treatment plan. I employ as many tools as I can to help reduce my patients’ pain, while also working to with them to take steps within their control to help manage their pain.
