Pain Management

Integrative Pain Management Program

Mount Sinai's Integrative Pain Management Practice combines Eastern and Western approaches to treat your pain, under the directorship of Houman Danesh, MD. We know that pain varies from person to person, so we develop a treatment plan designed just for you. We consider your medical condition and history as well as your cultural and personal values and preferences.

We strive to help you effectively manage your pain so it's less of a burden. If you are a cancer patient, for instance, we may be able to help you get a full night's sleep uninterrupted by aching or throbbing. If you have arthritis, we strive to enable you to get back to your regular activities.

Complementary Therapies We Use

  • Cupping
  • Gua sha (scraping)
  • Medical acupuncture
