At Nesbitt Pain Associates, our mission is to provide hope for the hurting. Whether you’ve suffered chronic pain for weeks, months, or years, our goal is the same: to craft the absolute best possible solution to manage your pain.

We use a multi-disciplinary approach to treating chronic pain that comes from your spine – namely your neck or back. These chronic pain issues often arise from injuries and/or degeneration of your spine in terms of disc damage or stenosis (the narrowing of the canals where your spinal cord and nerves lie). Regardless of the underlying cause of your back or neck pain, we will work with you to develop a personalized treatment plan designed to help you control it and get you back to being a happy, functioning, mobile human being. Nesbitt Pain Associates operates out of St. Vincent’s NeuroSpine Center (NSC), Grandview Medical Center, and out of our own offices. You may end up being seen at any one of these locations.
