The Forté Sports Medicine and Orthopedics pain management program takes a personal, multimodal approach. By understanding the nature of your pain and how different options work or have worked for you in the past, we can develop a highly personalized plan of action to improve your quality of life.

We believe that pain management begins with listening to the patient. By understanding the nature of your pain and how different options work or have worked for you in the past, we can develop a highly personalized plan of action to improve your quality of life.
Our pain management program takes a personal, multimodal approach. Your chiropractor, orthopedic specialty surgeons and physical therapists in the practice will work with you to build an individual pain management plans including procedures, medication, physical therapy and psychological support.
We develop patient-centered care plans that take your needs, goals, and lifestyle into account—treating you as a whole person, not just a condition.
To break the pain cycle, our program approaches the problem from multiple angles, and includes a wide variety of treatment options including injections, implants, and medication, but also lifestyle changes and physical therapy.
To work with Forté Sports Medicine and Orthopedics’s pain management program, you’ll need a referral from your primary care doctor or other physician. Once you’re referred to the practice, we’ll meet with you one-on-one to build understanding about your situation, and then we’ll develop your pain management plan.
Because of the complicated nature of pain, it can take time to identify the cause and find the right solution for your discomfort. Working directly with a pain management specialist is the best and fastest way to get to the root of your pain and start alleviating it.
It depends. We do not generally do same-day injections before consultation, and we very rarely prescribe opioids, even if a previous physician prescribed them. Be sure to bring your records or other information about your previous treatments to your appointments, and we’ll consider them as we get to know your case.
Except in extremely rare situations, our practice does not prescribe opioids for chronic pain. We believe in a more comprehensive approach to pain—working to understand the root causes and then developing a targeted strategy for pain management that is more effective and safer than opioid prescriptions.
