Pain Management

Finding the underlying cause of pain and coordinating care for it can be a challenge. It’s not uncommon for those in pain to navigate a maze of numerous tests, referrals to multiple specialists and delays in receiving effective treatment.

Temple’s Pain Management program offers advanced treatment options in a supportive, compassionate environment. Patients with acute or chronic pain receive care that addresses the physical, mental and behavioral issues that can arise from ongoing pain. 

The goal of our Pain Management specialists is to address your condition individually, manage your pain using multiple types of treatment, and help you return to optimal function in a timely manner.

A Streamlined Approach to Care

Our goal is to provide the appropriate care in the appropriate setting. To do this, each new patient is first evaluated by a Temple Health anesthesiologist or Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation specialist. Following a standardized assessment, patients are quickly directed to the most appropriate subspecialist for treatment. If no subspecialist is needed, patients are returned to their primary care physician with treatment recommendations. 

Treatment Options

To treat these and other conditions, Temple’s Pain Management specialists use the latest advances and develop individualized treatment plans to manage or eliminate your pain. We offer treatment approaches that range from medication to minimally invasive procedures, including:

  • Botox injections
