Interventional Pain Management
One of the most common reasons adults seek medical care today is chronic pain. Pain can affect every aspect of your life, often limiting mobility, and impacting not just your physical health but your emotional well-being. Advancements in pain physiology research have led to an improved understanding of supporting the body’s ability to heal itself and new modalities to intervene with pain signals so people can get back to living. Interventional pain medicine physicians take a multidisciplinary, integrated approach to treating all types of pain. Many patients come to us suffering from back and neck pain, painful joint or muscle conditions, and nerve pain in the arms and legs. Each patient goes through an evaluation and assessment that leads to a highly personalized level of care. If you want help with your pain, call to set up an appointment with Interventional Pain Medicine physician Dr. Matthew Johnson at the CHRISTUS Trinity Pain Management Clinic in Sulphur Springs at 903.885.1740.
