Pain Management

More expertise, less pain

Stamford Health's pain management physicians specialize in physical medicine and rehabilitation. They're trained in diagnosing and treating any painful orthopedic disorders you may have. We treat you as a person, not just your problem area. And we aim to help restore maximum function lost through injury, illness, or disabling conditions. We’ll work with you to develop a plan to both prevent and treat your pain effectively.

Our rehabilitation physicians are nerve, muscle and bone experts. They work together with other orthopedic specialists to treat a wide range of problems from sore shoulders to spinal cord injuries, all with the goal of decreasing pain and enhancing performance without surgery. Our physicians also use noninvasive procedures as both diagnostic and therapeutic tools, helping you to understand the source of your pain.

Your personalized treatment plan for pain and injury may include:

  • Medications
  • Physical therapy
  • Occupational therapy
  • Psychology
  • Braces/orthotics
  • Injections into muscles, bursae and joints
  • Interventional procedures, including epidural and facet joint (spinal) injections
  • Electromyography (EMG)
