Even when patients have not responded well to the component parts of a comprehensive pain rehabilitation program separately, there is often additional value to providing all of the needed treatment components at the same time, with very close collaboration among the treating professionals.  The key members of the Creative Pain Solutions treatment team are the pain physician, pain psychologist, and physical therapist.   Following the biopsychosocial model, the team treatment approach simultaneously addresses the multiple factors affecting chronic pain syndrome.  It is fundamentally a noninvasive treatment approach that involves few if any adverse effects, especially when compared to surgery or long-term use of narcotic pain medications.

At CPS we understand that successful rehabilitation also depends upon the wholehearted active involvement of our patients.  We consider our patients to be at the "hub of the wheel", that is to say they are at the center of a smoothly operating team and fully involved in their treatment process.  Rehabilitation may involve a long menu of options depending on the needs of the individual case.  The key CPS team members are listed below along with some of the treatment components for which they are primarily responsible.
