The WVU Medicine Center for Integrative Pain Management strives to treat the whole person, not just the physical symptoms of pain. Our trained providers take the time to figure out the underlying causes of your pain and develop an integrative and individualized plan to target the affected area and improve your quality of life. Self-referrals are accepted: 855-988-2273.

The WVU Medicine Center for Integrative Pain Management was formed to develop a better way to treat pain in the midst of a serious opioid epidemic. Our integrative approach combines the latest medical treatments with individual and group behavioral therapy, nutritional counseling with a registered dietitian, movement therapy with an exercise physiologist, and natural treatments like acupuncture, massage therapy, and chiropractic care. Increasing data shows that these non-pharmacological therapies are effective for treating acute and chronic pain.

All of our pain management services are conveniently located at the Van Voorhis Drive clinic in Suncrest. The WVU Medicine Center for Integrative Pain Management is a division of the Department of Neurosurgery and part of the WVU Medicine Spine Center at J.W. Ruby Memorial Hospital.
