Creekside Physical Medicine is a multidisciplinary pain management clinic that treats a variety of chronic pain problems such as migraine, headache, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, overuse injuries, neck and low back pain, TMJ and much more.
Creekside Physical Medicine’s goal is to provide the most updated care available to our pain and migraine population.
Through thorough evaluation, nervous system sensitization expertise and a broad treatment toolbox we are able to return patients to a high quality of life.
We Spend The Time
Pain and migraine disease processes are based in a nervous system that is irritated, or upregulated. Central nervous system (CNS) upregulation manifests in many ways, including: migraine, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, TMJ disorder, and many other presentations.
A critical aspect of treating patients is assessment of the total impact of central nervous system upregulation. Evaluation of our patients’ health history and the evolution of their symptoms is critical in evaluating and treating patients. This typically requires the clinician hearing the patients’ full story and asking questions to further isolate elements of CNS upregulation.
Multidisciplinary Treatment Plan
We have a variety of physical treatment options at our disposal including osteopathic manipulation, physical and massage therapy, strengthening therapies and acupuncture. We review sleep and dietary factors.
If necessary, we can employ medications and/or a variety of injections to give relief to patients who need additional help after other options have been exhausted.
We Look At The Big Picture
Evaluation of our patients’ health history and the evolution of their symptoms is critical in evaluating and treating patients. This typically requires the clinician hearing the patients’ full story and asking questions to further isolate elements of central nervous system upregulation. We will review sleep and dietary factors, as well as complete a blood and urine analysis to ensure we have all of the information and data needed.
After thorough diagnostic analysis, we customize a treatment plan to decrease the offending elevated nerve activity.
