WCPM's goal for all our patients is to give you back your life by reducing your pain and improving your daily functioning. We accomplish this goal with customized, safe, comprehensive and effective treatment plans that reduce risks and maximize benefits.
To protect our patients from the significant risks associated with opioid therapies (also known as narcotic medications) we stringently follow DEA recommendations regarding the prescribing of opioid medications. Furthermore, we only prescribe opioid medications if, after thorough screening, we determine that a patient's pathology warrants their use, they meet specific criteria, and lower risk treatment options have failed to achieve satisfactory results.
WCPM takes a conservative approach to opioid therapy. Research results continue to demonstrate that a regimen of higher doses can result in greater risk of physical dependence, tolerance, and addiction versus a more positive and long-lasting outcome with a treatment plan that includes lower doses.
We track our treatment outcomes to ensure that our patients are being helped. We are proud of our results and believe that if you suffer from chronic pain, we can help you. We provide a multidisciplinary, comprehensive approach to chronic pain that is safe, minimally invasive and highly effective.
