North American Spine & Pain Consultants
Our mission is to deliver the most outstanding spine and pain care through clinical excellence, community-based education programs and research endeavors to enhance the quality of life of all our patients.
Causing Your Pain
Pain can be caused by a variety of conditions that can be diagnosed and treated by a pain-management specialist. 1 in 4 Americans will be diagnosed with CRPS (Complex Regional Pain Syndrome) in their lifetime. Aging, deterioration or trauma from an event such as an automobile accident can be the causality of your pain. Knowing the cause will help your pain-management specialist through your recovery.
Solutions to Pain
We specialize in treating all types of acute and chronic pain conditions. Our treatments range from safe and sophisticated medication regimens to interventional procedures and wellness-based integrated techniques, aimed at providing long-term pain relief to give you back the life you deserve.
The world of pain management has changed, drastically over the last 10-15 years. Lead by Dr. Rastogi and Dr. Slevin, our team of providers at North American Spine and Pain not only want to help their patients, but also educate the rest of the world on new and safe ways to manage your pain.
