"I am so grateful for Tricity Pain Management they actually listen and care. I had a bad experience with another Pain Management years ago with a very extensive shoulder surgery and so you could say it was so good to have a a PA like James Houston to take care of me. Daniel his assistant is super kind as well. I wished my insurance company Atena cared like TriCity. This has been a very tough and trying season of my life. If you have a issue share it and they will listen. Thank you for caring during it."- A.L. / Google / Aug 18, 2022

Before recommending specific treatment options, we will perform a comprehensive exam to assess your condition and symptoms. In addition to an in-depth review of your medical history and symptoms, our physicians may run a series of diagnostic tests, such as advanced imaging or pain mapping. This helps us pinpoint the reason for your pain, allowing us to create a more personalized treatment plan. After diagnosing degenerative disc disease, patients will generally start off with more conservative treatments, such as pain medicine, anti-inflammatory drugs, or physical therapy. For more severe cases or if conservative methods do not alleviate the pain, patients may need more advanced treatment, including surgery.
