Chronic & Acute Pain

If you have chronic pain, you may have been struggling with it for years. Some conditions are so painful that they affect your ability to complete daily tasks or participate in normal activities. Long-term pain that isn’t treated can cause additional psychological problems such as depression, anxiety and stress. We want to help.

Let Us Treat Your Chronic Pain

When you visit University Health, you will have access to pain medicine doctors who are known for their skill and expertise. Our pain specialists have an understanding of how pain messaging works throughout the body. For example, successful treatment of most chronic back pain conditions brought on by nerve, joint or muscle pain requires treating the whole person, physically and mentally.

Members of your pain management team work closely with you to identify the cause of your pain. We treat the source of your problem, not just your symptoms. Our goal is to get you back to a happy, pain-free life as efficiently as possible.
