He has subspecialty training in non-surgical musculoskeletal care, medical management of pain, and interventional diagnostic and therapeutic procedures, including minimally invasive surgical treatment of chronic pain.
He specializes in the treatment of pain stemming from a variety of conditions, including head and neck pain, back pain, degenerative disc disease, spinal stenosis, joint pain related to osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis, spinal compression fractures, sciatica, herniated disc, sports- and work-related injuries, complex regional pain syndrome, cancer, and shingles-related nerve pain.
Dr. Jacobs strives to provide care that is thoughtful, compassionate, and individualized to patient-driven goals. As the treatment of chronic pain is often complex and multifactorial, he seeks to establish a bond with each of his patients based on mutual respect, honesty and open communication.

His research on these topics has been featured on the cover of Pain Medicine News. In addition, he has extensive training in implantable nerve stimulators, medication delivery systems, and interspinous spacer devices.
“As a Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation physician, I believe structure and function are deeply interrelated. Using both interventional and non-interventional approaches, I seek to provide my patients with a comprehensive, personalized plan to restore function in the short term with a long term focus on prevention.”
