Chronic pain. It consistently costs people their jobs, their marriage, their friends. It can put a person into total isolation. Social connections and income can be lost. Unceasing pain reduces some lives to shambles. And, it can happen to anyone at any time.
Help for many, however, is as close as the interventional Pain Clinic at Southern Coos Hospital and Health Center. People are helped through outpatient procedures that do not involve narcotics or surgery.
Referrals to the Pain Management Clinic at Southern Coos are generally made by the person’s primary physician. In many cases, an MRI is necessary. MRIs are available every Monday at Southern Coos.
