Relieving the Pain

The Pain Management Program at NorthShore Healthcare treats patients who may be experiencing pain for a variety of reasons – fibromyalgia, arthritis, knee and joint pain, muscle pain, back pain, diabetes related nerve pain (neuropathy), and migraines – to name just a few. Our approach is that no patient needs to suffer with chronic pain if properly managed and monitored.

Our physicians take an integrated approach to help patients function comfortably with their day-to-day routine. This includes managing and optimizing the use of prescription drugs and other types of therapies, as well administering nerve blocks and trigger point injections.

Pain management services are offered at the offices of Dr. Jeff Hopcian in Avon, Cleveland, Lakewood and Westlake.
