We have compassion for those living with the burden of pain. Not all pain is experienced the same way; our patients deserve a treatment plan that is specifically designed to meet individual needs. At the TRIA Pain Program (Bloomington), we are fellowship trained physicians, physical therapists, and psychologists, offering the most current and effective medical interventions and therapies. We foster a supportive environment, using all available evidence and resources, to help patients increase function and reduce suffering. Our goal is your recovery. The TRIA Pain Program’s success is measured by improvement in patient function. While minimizing pain is very important, analgesia is a means, rather than an end. With the ultimate goal to improve overall quality of life, we work to help patients reengage in meaningful and fulfilling activities at work and play with family and friends.
Our facility has four exam rooms and three procedure rooms. One room is for radiology procedures while the other two rooms are for pain interventions. We are two doctors, four nurses, one administrative assistant, a pool of five radiologic technologists, a world class PT/OT team, excellent frontline staff, a very supportive administration team and a great call center. We also have access to psychologists and addiction specialists.
We diagnose and treat everything from common low back, neck and joint pain, to rare pain syndromes like Complex Regional Pain Syndrome and Centralized Pain Syndrome. Clinical decisions are based on the latest evidence and consider a comprehensive, multimodal plan for each individual. In addition to medication, therapy, and other specialty care, we offer a wide variety of pain interventions/procedures – from epidural steroids to botox for headaches. We will also soon offer cutting-edge procedures like implantable neuromodulation and spinal cord stimulation.
