Here at Southern Pain Clinic of Southeastern Louisiana, we employ a wide variety of pain-treatment methods, with the overarching goal of improving the quality of life for our patients while minimizing the need for costly and invasive surgeries.

Tens of thousands of people across the country live with daily chronic pain. It's often referred to as the invisible illness. But while your pain may go unnoticed by others, its impact can be enormous. During the entire month of September, organizations join hands to raise awareness, and reduce stigma, about living with pain and pain management. Events (both virtual and in-real-life) are held across the country. Blue ribbons and signs promoting Pain Awareness Month will appear and dozens of landmarks and well-known buildings—from the New Orleans Superdome to Los Angeles International Airport—choose one day to be bathed in blue light as part of the Beautify in Blue initiative to spread the word. Pain Awareness Month is supported by a number of patient advocacy organizations, including the U.S. Pain Foundation, American Chronic Pain Association, and the multi-organization Partners for Understanding Pain.
