Pain is the most common reason for someone to seek medical care. Our expert team at UF Health Pain Medicine is well-equipped to unearth the roots of these wide-ranging ailments and treat them accordingly.
Our goal is to construct and carry out a safe and effective treatment plan that will guide the patient past the pain and toward restored health, function and quality of life. We accomplish this through a collaborative approach that involves our patients, their primary care providers and other specialists to determine the best treatment strategies, including:
- Physical therapy to strengthen and improve injured bodies
- Counseling to decrease pain and medication impact
- Minimally invasive procedures to eliminate or control pain generators
Oftentimes, this process needs the input of specialists in physical therapy, occupational therapy, mental health, neurosurgery, orthopaedic surgery and general surgery. Particular avenues such as interventional treatment and multimodal therapy may also be considered.

I ended up finding Dr. Przkora at UF Health, and that was the best move I ever made.
