Comprehensive Pain Management

What is Chronic Pain? 

Oftentimes, illnesses or injuries cause significant, lasting pain that over-the-counter pain medications just can't handle. Typically, pain that lasts longer than six weeks is considered chronic pain and should be evaluated by a physician.

Chronic pain is often a multifaceted problem that requires input from more than one specialist. To provide the best and most comprehensive care, we use a multidisciplinary approach that coordinates services from Crozer-Keystone's skilled specialists and your primary care physician.

If you are experiencing chronic pain, ask your primary care doctor about the pain management services at Crozer-Keystone Health System.
