East Jefferson General Hospital

The Pain Management Institute is an MPSI practice managed by East Jefferson General Hospital.

The Pain Management Institute offers a multidisciplinary patient centered approach to the treatment of chronic pain, including surgical and non-surgical pain solutions such as: including physical therapy, cognitive therapy, medications and injections.

Pain Management is dedicated to helping those with chronic pain improve their quality of life by controlling their pain. Adequate pain control is important to an individual's physical and mental health. Untreated pain can cause lost sleep, depression, anxiety, irritability, lost productivity and the inability to do things they once enjoyed. Pain decreases the body's ability to fight disease and can prevent an individual from participating fully in his or her own care.
