Pain Management Treatment During COVID-19 and Beyond
Aches, stiffness, and soreness can be sudden or ongoing. Don’t let pain stop you from living life. Finding the right help is important in taking care of your pain.
Dr. Gates sees personal wellness as a key strategy for the management of pain. She believes there are a myriad of ways in which overall general health can be optimized for patients, and is enthusiastic about treating each patient on an individual basis to find areas of pain management in which they may be lacking.
Join Dr. Gates in a discussion about managing chronic pain now and in the future.

Pet Therapy to Help You De-Stress
IBJI’s Leon Benson, MD, Orthopedic Surgeon, brings Virtual Pet Therapy to you in your home to help you destress during COVID-19.
There are numerous scientific studies that suggest that interacting with dogs and other friendly animals can decrease stress levels. Dogs have been found to lower blood pressure, lower heart rate, slow breathing, and relax muscle tension.
Dr. Benson’s Portuguese Water Dogs, Chelsea, 15, and Cooper, 10, are certified therapy dogs and go to work with him a few times per month to ease patients’ tension.
