Pathways Overview



<< Back


The Bay Area Pain & Wellness Center is committed to the comprehensive and integrated treatment of complex pain problems.

In order to do this effectively and efficiently, we have developed several different clinical pathways to assess and treat most of the patients we see in our practice.

This process allows us to better understand each and every one of you as individuals and treat you as a whole person.

During your initial consultation with your pain specialist, he or she will likely guide you into one of our specific clinical treatment pathways based on your needs.

This is a new and unusual concept in pain management that we hope will make your experience at the Bay Area Pain & Wellness Center the best possible.

Learn more about our Clinical Pathways:

  • CRPS/RSD/RSI
  • Spine Care
  • Cancer Pain Management
  • Chronic Pain Management
  • Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) / Repetitive Strain Injuries (RSI)

    The CRPS and RSI pathways address neurological, musculoskeletal and emotional factors to promote overall function and well being.

    For acute CRPS cases (also called Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy or Causalgia), we provide a combination of physical rehabilitation, medication management, psychological treatments and special nerve blocks to promote the recovery of extremity range of motion, strength and function. We employ varying techniques to improve pain control.

    Patients with chronic CRPS and RSI receive comprehensive interdisciplinary care that addresses the full impact of the problem on their lives.
