Non-Invasive Pain Management

Living with pain is not always the only option. In situations where surgery is undesirable, Evia Medical provides a number of traditional and alternative medical techniques for addressing acute and chronic muscular and joint pain. Our goal at Evia Medical is to avoid the use of prescription pain medications and to help reduce the need for patients to use these potentially addictive drugs.
Our medical, acupuncture and massage team professionals utilize non-invasive pain management techniques including osteopathic manipulative medicine, trigger point injections, acupuncture, medical massage and other modalities in order to help manage pain induced from neurological, muscular, arthritic and tension/stress problems.

We have found that for acute pain resulting from traumatic occurrences (e.g. muscle spasms, etc.), the most dramatic improvement often occurs when treatments are initiated soon after the onset of the injury. However, our experienced team has had tremendous success in resolving various pain related issues regardless of when the injury occurred.
