Pain Management

Pain Management at Lafayette Centre

Pain, whether it’s recent or chronic, can affect one’s ability to work, exercise, do household chores, care for others, or participate in social activities.  The goal of the Pain Management Clinic at Lafayette Centre is to help patients reach their best level of function.  We specialize in the treatment of complex or challenging pain conditions, particularly those which haven’t responded well to other treatments.  Our board-certified specialist, Dr. Jacobs, has access to the latest technology and can provide innovative treatments to help our patients meet their goals.  Dr. Jacobs believes that many patients with complex and chronic symptoms tend to have the best outcomes from an interdisciplinary approach, so he works closely with physical therapists, psychologists, surgeons, and others to offer a comprehensive treatment plan.  New patients should expect to start with an evaluation of their pain complaints, after which Dr. Jacobs will recommend an individualized approach to management.
