Pain Management | Somerset Orthopedic and Sports Medicine

​Pain Management

We aim to improve your quality of life through the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of pain. This is known as pain management. If pain is sharp in quality but disappears after the underlying cause fades, then it is acute pain. If ​pain continues, especially after six months, it is chronic pain. Dr. Choi knows that both types of pain can keep you from living and enjoying a fulfilling life. ​Treatment and prevention options for managing Acute and Chronic are aimed to get you back into your daily routine as quickly as possible. ​

Dr. Choi is an experienced and Board Certified pain management physician. His pain management team will provide comprehensive diagnosis and treatment of both acute and chronic ​musculoskeletal pain. Pain management treatment options are administered for those living with acute or chronic pain from injury or illness, following surgery, or disease.
