The web site for the Advanced Pain Diagnostic and Treatment Consultants (APDTC) APDTC is an association of independent pain treatment physicians.
Chronic pain takes its toll on its victims in a physical, psychological and functional manner. Pain can negatively affect sleep, disrupt family relationships, cause poor work performance and put a strain on oneís entire lifestyle.
We can help with ìtailor-made,î comprehensive treatment programs to meet particular medical and personal needs.
Our philosophy is to keep patients pain-free, alert, functional and to avoid narcotics as much as possible. We accomplish this with up-to-date diagnostic and treatment techniques.
