Pain Medicine at Main Line Spine offers a comprehensive range of services for patients with acute or chronic painful disorders. We develop individualized treatment plans to ensure you get the right therapy when you need it.
Pain is a complex, challenging problem, requiring careful investigation of symptoms and specialized care. Our goal is to help you decrease your level of pain and suffering, to return you to your maximum level of functioning and independence, and to help you restore your quality of life.
Treatment plans begin by determining the cause of your pain through advanced diagnostic tests. We then work to ease or eliminate pain using state-of-the-art medical and interventional treatments. Your treatment plan may include a single approach or a combination of different types of therapies.
We’ll listen to you closely, respond to your concerns, and develop a mutually acceptable treatment plan. We’ll also take into full account the effectiveness – or not – of therapies that you may have used in the past. We want to make sure that we take advantage of those insights to avoid treatments that have not worked previously.
Our intent, over time, is to reduce the burden of your symptoms, improve your functional capabilities, and achieve the goals that we have set together for ourselves as practitioner and patient.
Consultation and Conditions

Throughout the duration of your treatment, we will remain in contact with your primary physician to keep them apprised of your progress.
