Patients in our facilities are asked specific questions about their pain and then examined using a scientific approach. The cause-and-effect relationship of abnormal physiology and pain production is identified.
The focus at our facilities is mobility instead of strength, correcting abnormal physiology instead of diagnosing dysfunction, and tailored treatment programs instead of generic physical therapies.
Treatments at Summa Pain Care are supervised by the physician. Insights from this have produced new techniques for modalities and new methods of exercise and stretching protocols. We do not prescribe narcotics, prescribe weeks of therapies, or involve psychologists in our treatments.

Dr. Kendrick Thomas completed his Anesthesiology residency at University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences in 2014 where he received specialized training in regional anesthesia and pain medicine. He then returned to his home state of Arizona for a year of intensive fellowship training in Interventional Pain Management. He seeks to evaluate each patient as an individual and to understand their specific needs. He gives candid advice to his patients and prefers a conservative approach to treatment.
Dr. Thomas was inspired to begin his career as a Pain Physician after receiving life-changing interventional treatment for his own chronic back condition.
“I just wanted to say “thank you”. Since my first visit I was able to hike the next day and had only minor discomfort and is does not even compare to the severe pain I has having the last two months”
“When I was recently referred to you by my primary care physician, I didn’t realize how lucky I was”
