What can I expect during a pain management consultation?

You can expect a comprehensive evaluation at Quantum during your pain management consultation. The team takes a holistic approach to care and focuses on your overall health, not just your pain.

During your evaluation, you may be asked about your symptoms, medical history, family history, your lifestyle, and how your pain limits you in daily activities.

Based on the information gathered during your consultation, the team at Quantum Pain & Sports Medicine will then develop a personalized treatment plan for you. This tailored plan includes, but is not limited to, physical therapy, medications, transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS), anti-inflammatory food plan, customized exercise program, cutting-edge interventional pain procedures, regenerative medicine, and neuromodulation therapy.
