This practice treats patients that have suffered from traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, stroke, amputation, burns, multiple orthopedic trauma, and patients that are suffering from progressive neurologic diseases, such as MS (Multiple Sclerosis), ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis), Lou Gehrig’s disease, as well as patients that suffer from musculoskeletal pain and discomfort.
We treat pediatric, adolescent, adult, and geriatric patients.
The goal of this practice is to decrease pain and increase function. Pain is inevitable, and suffering is optional. We attempt to turn disability into ability, illness into health, and hopelessness to hope.
There are three components to pain:
1. The first component is the physical component, the “ouch.”
2. Multiple “ouches” is suffering, and;
3. The third component is depression.
The practice of Craig H. Lichtblau, M.D. addresses all components of chronic pain and discomfort to maximize the patient’s function and return them to society at their highest functional level.
