Pain Management

Sometimes a 15-minute appointment isn’t long enough to talk about pain!

Our Pain Management based Shared Medical Appointments are designed to help patients improve their quality of life through proven treatments and wellness techniques. These appointments also provide the time, and support, you need as you learn to manage your chronic pain.

All patients should first have an individual consultation with their Heritage Health Provider prior to scheduling an SMA.

Pain Management

This course is uniquely designed to provide patients extended time with pain management specialists in the company of others who share similar health concerns. When chronic pain does not improve with medication, injections or surgery, or when the treatment of pain creates new problems, this program can provide less invasive forms of treatment to manage pain. Facilitators will empower you to manage your symptoms and take control of your life.
