Treatment

Managing pain
on a personal level

We take a holistic approach to managing your patients chronic pain. We are not a "block shop" that simply takes a short meeting, prescribes a medication, and sends your patients on their way. Instead, we take a multi-faceted approach to treating a wide range of pain types, patient types, and personal goals. At HPM, we make it a priority to build personal relationships, taking additional time to educate your patients on options and expectations, while developing trust between them, HPM and the referring provider.

PATIENT'S FIRST VISIT

For new patients, will set aside one hour for them to share their pain story. We will comprehensively evaluate their cause of pain during that time which allows us to provide an accurate diagnosis and develop a personalized treatment regimen that will best benefit future treatment recommendations.

We will present the patient with education regarding their diagnosis and our plan to reduce pain and improve function. We will then order imaging and personally review those findings; refer patient to physical therapy, massage therapy, chiropractic care, and/or counseling; and prescribe appropriate non-opioid medications and/or order injections when believed to be beneficial. All data is further synthesized for clear communication back to the referral source ensuring all service lines in the patient’s continuum of care are working in unison.

NEXT STEPS

After each patient’s initial consult and implementation or completion of any conservative recommendations or injections, we will review the outcomes of those treatments. We will then determine the next steps and continue ongoing management and support of their chronic pain needs.

CONTINUOUS SUPPORT

Our goal is to improve the patients function and mobility by reducing pain. Chronic pain is a complex disease process that requires long-term management. We value not only the initial approach and interventions implemented to treat their pain, but also the long-term therapeutic relationship built with patients that is necessary to ensure adequate acute and chronic treatment of their ongoing pain management needs.
