Aurora Sheboygan Memorial Medical Center Pain Management & Rehab Center
A comprehensive approach to pain management
The Aurora Pain Management & Rehab Center at Aurora Sheboygan Memorial Medical Center provides personalized assistance for patients with persistent pain.
We recognize the long-term disabling effects persistent pain can have on your life. We understand that the emotional frustration is as important as the physical symptoms. The benefit of a comprehensive pain program will be improved performance of daily living activities at home, work and in the community.
To meet your diverse and often complex needs, the Aurora Pain Management & Rehab Center incorporates an interdisciplinary approach to pain management providing treatments, lifestyle options and coping strategies to manage pain.
Depending on your needs, your medical team of pain specialists could include:
- Physical therapists
- Occupational therapists
- Orthopedic surgeons
Our team includes board certified physicians and therapists that meet regularly to monitor patient progress. In addition, we like to include our patients in the healing process by making them part of their own treatment team.
Treatment "contracts" between patients and staff are frequently established to empower patients to take responsibility for achieving their program goals. We encourage you to keep your health care providers informed of everything you do to bring your health into balance. We believe that good communication results in better and more cost effective care.
