Our core treatment is an interdisciplinary program for individuals with chronic pain, concussions, or other work-related conditions that impair function. Based on a proven biopsychosocial model, the highly structured, interdisciplinary 20-day curriculum combines the resources of physical therapy, medicine, psychology, and vocational counseling to educate and

of function and productivity.

The same multidisciplinary expertise is also available to be brought together to treat patients with concussions. Whether a given patient requires only medical care, or any combination of medical, psychological, neuropsychological, physical therapy and vocational counseling, they can have access to all the needed expert care under one roof.

NEWS AND ARTICLES

Our February 2015 newletter is out, and available by clicking on the hyperlink. It provides an update on the state of current research regarding the use of opioids for chronic pain.

However, it remains the case that there is no research documenting the safety and efficacy of opioids for chronic pain beyond about three months of treatment. While there are anecdotal reports of some patients benefiting from long-term use, no studies have been able to identify these patients. This appears significant in light of the resources that have been dedicated over the years to promoting opioid prescriptions.
