Pain Management

Center for Interventional Spine & Joint Care

Living with chronic pain can be a debilitating and isolating experience. It can undermine our ability to participate in, and enjoy, the simple pleasures of daily living. At Rush Memorial, we seek to form a partnership with our patients that is based on empathy with their experience of pain, clear communication concerning their treatment options, and a respect for their input into the pain management process.

The Role of Pain Management in Patient Care

Listen to Pain Management Specialist Dr. Sahba Charkhzarrin explain the role of Pain Management in patient care. Dr. Charkhzarrin explains how Pain Management Specialists work with other healthcare providers to help patients who are suffering from chronic pain. When treating patients, Dr. Charkhzarrin’s goal is to 1) determine the cause of chronic pain 2) treat the cause of the pain, and 3) treat the pain itself. One of the most important goals of treatment is to help patients regain normal function so that they can return to doing the things they love to do so that they can live a healthier and more fulfilled life.

Conservative Pain Management Treatment Options

Listen to Pain Management Specialist Dr. Sahba Charkhzarrin discuss the treatment options offered in conservative pain management.
