Ridgeview Spine & Pain Center
The Ridgeview Spine & Pain Center team provides treatments to improve or manage patients’ pain with the goal to restore and maintain a better quality of life.
Pain may be the result of physiological or mechanical damage to a person’s body. Acute and chronic pain conditions can have a significant impact on an individual’s ability to function normally and maintain a desired quality of life. There are many options available to manage pain. Effective treatment involves an accurate diagnosis of the underlying condition.
The goals of pain management are to reduce pain, improve function and enhance quality of life. Treatments may include a combination of non-narcotic drug therapy, interventional therapy and alternative therapy. Plans are often adapted based on the patient’s response to care.
