Dr. Glynn recognizes chronic pain may affect the sufferer in many ways and the most beneficial treatment plan may include 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. Dr. Glynn finds that listening carefully to the patient’s history of pain, along with review of medical history, imaging studies and physical exam are all integral in determining the underlying cause of symptoms. She is able to offer a wide range of pain management treatments to help each patient reach their individual goals.
Dr. Glynn also performs regenerative medicine procedures to treat a wide range of conditions including back and neck pain, tennis and golfer’s elbow, joint arthritis, rotator cuff injuries, foot and ankle pain, ligament, cartilage, and tendon injuries.
