Learn About Prairie Spine & Pain Institute

Our mission at The Prairie Spine and Pain Institute is to empower our patients to manage chronic pain in a manner that will make a positive difference in the quality of their lives. We treat each patient with a combination of medical, nutritional, physical, and behavioral therapies, and do so in an atmosphere that encourages the patient to participate actively in important decisions about the treatment and management of his or her chronic pain.

We have assembled high-quality healthcare professionals who believe in the team approach. Treatment at the Prairie Spine and Pain Institute is based on a multi-disciplinary system; therefore, the staff physicians are trained in pain management and rehabilitation. They listen and understand the individual concerns of every patient they treat, and they work with each patient to develop a pain treatment and management plan that addresses these concerns.
