At Summit, our goal is to help patients reduce their symptoms and improve their quality of life. We have a range of tools at our disposal, including physical therapy, medications, and injections, as well as bracing and other healing modalities such as acupuncture.
Summit’s pain expertise is focused on interventional spine therapies for patients who experience intermittent or recurrent back pain. Our treatments include:
- Diagnostic procedures
- Therapeutic procedures
- Minimally invasive surgery
- Laser surgery
- Other specialized surgical procedures
Our goal is to assist you with pain control and improved function at the lowest effective dose of pain medication.
Our practice treats recurrent pain patients. Recurrent pain may be experienced occasionally, or appear whenever you perform a certain activity, but it is not constant.
We do not treat chronic pain patients who take narcotic medication for ongoing pain that has not been resolved through therapy. Chronic pain is constant pain that continues over a long period of time. Chronic pain patients require specialized behavioral expertise to manage the brain changes that develop with unresolved, daily pain.
If your pain is chronic, we will be happy to refer you to a medical clinic that specializes in narcotics management.
