The Latest and Most Leading-Edge Therapies Available

Pain Management
Our goal in pain management is simple: to improve our patients’ quality of life and get them back to the activities they miss…without surgery. At The Ainsworth Institute, we pride ourselves on treating the whole patient, not just the symptoms or individual findings on an MRI. We believe in a multi-disciplinary approach to treating pain. That means working carefully with your primary care and/or referring physician (whether that be your surgeon, neurologist, oncologist, psychiatrist or psychologist) and sometimes enlisting the aid of a physical therapist to help get you more active again.
