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, to provide relief from pain, and improve your quality of life.
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.
