The primary goals of treatment include:

- Increasing mobility
- Diminishing dependency on pain medication
- Decreasing medical complications of pain
- Decreasing length of hospital stays and frequency of visits
- Allowing patients to be involved in their own pain management
Acceptance into the Program
Referrals are accepted from all practitioners of medicine and allied health specialists. The patient is treated as an outpatient or inpatient, depending on their needs. All efforts will be made to maintain the patient’s relationship with their primary practitioner. The referring practitioner will be included in all aspects of patient care by written or verbal communication. This coordination ensures the patient’s return to a productive lifestyle
