Personalized assessment, treatment and monitoring.
Millions of Americans suffer from pain, with back pain and neck pain being among the most common. The goal of our pain management team is to work with you to understand and effectively treat your pain and improve your quality of life.
Led by board-certified physicians with specific training and expertise in pain management, our program offers care for patients experiencing persistent pain as a result of aging, injury, illness or surgery. We assess your unique needs, coordinate a comprehensive treatment plan, and continuously monitor your progress. Our program is designed to treat pain without surgery or opioid medications. If surgery is needed, we work closely with the appropriate surgeon.
Our physicians, board-certified in anesthesiology or pain management, and our skilled staff offer the latest and most effective pain management solutions available, including:
A referral from your physician is required prior to assessment and treatment by the pain management team.
Our Acute Low Back Pain Program, which is part of our comprehensive spine program, is designed for people experiencing persistent low back pain (lasting 3-5 weeks) that is not successfully treated with physical therapy. Our goals are to minimize the use of opioids, imaging tests, and invasive procedures.
Addiction to prescription opioids such as oxycodone (Percocet®) or hydrocodone (Vicodin®) has become an epidemic across the U.S. Our program offers safe and effective treatment options for pain management, including injections, acupuncture and non-narcotic medications. While most acute low back pain can be effectively treated without narcotics, opioids may still be used cautiously when appropriate.
If you have low back pain, first consult with your primary care doctor who can provide the appropriate referrals, usually beginning with physical therapy at one of our convenient Penn Medicine Lancaster General Health outpatient locations. Each facility has a team specially trained in Acute Low Back Pain protocols. Treatment will involve one of the following:
