Dr. Fox and his colleagues at APCC are firmly committed to reducing or eliminating chronic pain. First, they determine the source of the pain and the best treatment plan. Whether it's using a conservative approach such as physical therapy or a more advanced interventional procedure such as spinal cord stimulation, APCC physicians strive to help patients function again, get back to work and live life to the fullest. APCC offers a wide array of interventional procedures such as stem cell therapy, which can be especially effective for patients suffering from joint and disc pain, and oxygen-ozone treatment for those who suffer from excruciating pain from bulging or herniated discs.
