Dr. Manohar's Care Philosophy

Untreated chronic pain can be very debilitating not only physically but also mentally. Therefore pain needs to be treated and controlled early to minimize these declines. A careful diagnosis as to why someone hurts is very important before any treatment can be successfully implemented. A treatment program needs to consist of Medication management, Interventional procedures where indicated, Physical Therapy and exercise and proper Nutrition. Over reliance on just one modality is usually ineffective. We have all seen the devastating effects of just escalating opiates to control pain. Sometimes Physical Therapy is not effective when pain is intense. A balanced approach is therefore more effective and also appreciated by the patient. Surgery should be a last resort to managing chronic pain. As a fellowship trained interventional pain physician my goal is to minimize the need to proceed to surgery and to minimize the need for opiate pain medications This approach not only leads to better long term outcomes for the patient but also lower medical cost.

I have been seeing Dr. Manohar for the last few years. Both him and his staff are always professional and I love that Dr. Manohar always takes the time to listen to how I am feeling and lets me decide if I want to have another treatment or try to wait a little longer could not ask for a better doctor or staff.. My pain has been very manageable since starting treatment with his office picking him as a Doctor was one of the best decisions I made for my back

I've had lower back pain for 10 years due to injuries while serving on active duty with the military. It's now aggravated by degenerative arthritis running down my back into my hips. Military medicine did their best to alleviate my pain, but with little success. I was referred to Dr Manohar by the Naval hospital in Jacksonville. In 3 months Dr Manohar has relieved most of the pain and I now feel great. My back is not perfect, but it's better than it has been in many years. Thanks Dr Manohar!

Dr. Manohar made me feel confident from my first visit. He listened to me, and asked questions. His exam was thorough, and his approach matter-of-fact. He told me what I needed to do, and was my guide along the way. I am thankful for Dr. Manohar and his staff, they have truly been a blessing.

Great staff, very friendly! Had me in and out very quickly. Doc didn't seem like he wasnt interested with my issue, he took genuine time with me and I've been feeling great after his treatment.

Absolutely love Dr. Manohar. He has completely gotten rid of my back pain since I've started seeing him when I've been to at least 5 other doctors before that could not help at all. He listens to me and explains treatments very thoroughly. Also, very friendly and helpful staff and short wait times. Would definitely recommend!!

Wonderfull experiences ! I was in fear I would have to have back surgery and wanted to make that my last option! Dr. Manohar helped me make that a fear in the past! His care plan for me and my injection worked wonders on me! There's no greater feeling in the world then noticing you're walking and the pain has subsided.

Leaving today I had a weight lifted off my shoulders! The doctor was very patient and very detailed with my future care plan. I was treated like family, and will be recommending him. I look forward to less pain. Thank you so much Dr. Manohar.
3rd visit. First 2 visit was good. 3rd visit I did not see the Dr. because the office manager did not allow me to see him because she stated my insurance company did not pay the $83.56 which was paid (Chandra-office manager admitted later it was a computer error). Chandra was rude and insisted that no payment was made. We asked her to contact the insurance company and was advised she had no time. Will not recommend to others due to office manager rudeness.

Dr. Manohar's Care Philosophy

Untreated chronic pain can be very debilitating not only physically but also mentally.  Therefore pain needs to be treated and controlled early to minimize these declines.  A careful diagnosis as to why someone hurts is very important before any treatment can be successfully implemented.  A treatment program needs to consist of Medication management, Interventional procedures where indicated, Physical Therapy and exercise and proper Nutrition.

Over reliance on just one modality is usually ineffective.  We have all seen the devastating effects of just escalating opiates to control pain.  Sometimes Physical Therapy is not effective when pain is intense.  A balanced approach is therefore more effective and also appreciated by the patient.

Surgery should be a last resort to managing chronic pain.  As a fellowship trained interventional pain physician my goal is to minimize the need to proceed to surgery and to minimize the need for opiate pain medications  This approach not only leads to better long term outcomes for the patient but also lower medical cost.

Dr. Manohar says...

A History & Physical is essential before you can arrive at any diagnosis.  Knowing why someone hurts is very important before you can start a treatment plan.  After a treatment plan has been developed, it then needs to be implemented.  After implementation has started it needs to reassessed periodically to see if it has been effective.  If it has not been effective, then the original diagnosis needs to be reevaluated.

Using this philosophy we have treated patients with chronic pain since 2009.  Pain involving the spine, including the neck, middle and lower back.  We have also treated patients with joint pains involving the shoulder, elbow, wrist, hands, hips, knees, ankle and foot. Pain can originate from not only the joints but also tendons and ligaments mimicking joint pain.  Sciatica can originate as a result of disk bulge or herniation from the lumbar spine or pain mimicking sciatica can originate outside the spine.

Dr. Manohar says...

Dr. Manohar is fellowship trained in interventional Pain Management.  He is also a board certified in Anesthesiology and Pain Management.  He has more than 5 years experience treating patients with chronic pain involving the spine as well as the joints, muscles, tendons and ligaments.  He has more than 10 years experience with procedures involving the spine.  You can rest assured that you are in the hands of a highly trained medical doctor with several years of experience in treating patients suffering from chronic pain.
