Mind Mood Pain, Interventional Pain and Psychiatry, is a dual disciplinary medical practice providing interventional treatments for disorders affecting the nervous system, including psychiatric and pain conditions. We work to improve functionality while easing emotional, psychiatric and physical distress. Approaching each patient with an open mind, we work with patients to develop a comprehensive plan, addressing pain while promoting positive mental health. Our individualized treatment plans incorporate interventional and innovative therapies while providing education and support to improve a patient’s sense of wellbeing. We don’t just address a primary pain or psychiatric disorder; we work with patients to build resilience and support while strengthening the mind and body. This comprehensive approach leads to long term health and quality of life.
Our Approach to Treatment
We recognize the importance of avoiding medications that may have negative physical and mental health effects. Our treatments include proven therapies along with new, evolving treatments targeting faulty pain signaling and neurotransmitter dysfunction. Through neuromodulation, infusion and injection therapy and minimally invasive procedures, we can help with chronic central or peripheral nerve pain. Because chronic pain and mood disorders are both caused by nervous system dysfunction, medications prescribed or used in treatments typically target nerve cells, neurotransmitter levels and receptors. Many medications have benefits for treating chronic pain and depression and anxiety. Antidepressants target receptors along the pathways of chronic pain, which we feel are in close relation to nerve path signals for mood stability. In fact, the effectiveness of antidepressants for chronic pain led to the identification of a common pathway in the development of these two seemingly unrelated areas of medicine.
