The primary goals of Dr. Tristan Shockley at CHOICE Pain and Rehabilitation Center are to assist patients in pain management, to return patients to their maximum activity and independence and restore patients’ quality of life.
CHOICE Pain and Rehabilitation Center, with locations in Hyattsville, Lanham, and Gaithersburg Maryland, offers a wide-range of treatment options for pain to ensure the best results. An increasing number of doctors in Maryland are now offering pain management services, but unfortunately, many of these providers have no formal training in pain management and may not administer medications within the required standard of care.
A large number of these physicians may only offer injection treatments and refuse to accept the responsibility of prescribing narcotic medications. In these cases, after injection therapy treatment is exhausted, the patient is told to return to the referring physician for the management of narcotic medications. Dr. Tristan Shockley of CHOICE Pain and Rehabilitation Center understands that treatment involves proper pain injection therapy along with continuing care beyond the pain injections.
Because chronic pain may affect the sufferer in many ways, the most beneficial treatment may require a multi-disciplinary approach. This means providing treatment not just for the physical pain, but also treatment to help the patient return to mental and emotional well being. CHOICE Pain and Rehabilitation Center is able to offer a very wide range of pain management treatments to achieve these goals.
