We acknowledge that conditions like fibromyalgia and chronic pain are complex. Nutrition, sleep, stress, relationships with loved ones, and a host of other factors can play a role in daily functioning with these conditions. We want to improve your quality of life and help you get back to the activities you love.
Two of our providers, Dr. Rainey and Dr. Davis, are credentialed as Functional Pain Managers (FPM), which means they have demonstrated an ability to treat primary pain conditions effectively with a biopsychosocial approach.
Pain = Biology + Psychology + Social Factors
Functional pain management looks to underlying problems that can be playing a role in pain. The domains of biology, psychology, and social factors are interconnected and overlap to produce and reduce pain. Functional pain management is a patient-centered approach. We want to understand a person's individuality, the role of genetics, and environmental and social influence. We will spend time with you, listening to your health history and journey with pain.
We have found that incorporating functional pain management into our practice improves a patient's response to treatment, supporting the healing process. We identify health as a positive vitality, not just the absence of disease.
