treatment spotlight


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.
