Pain Treatment and Management

Treating the root cause of chronic pain and related conditions.

Most of our patients have suffered a long time from symptoms of chronic pain or infectious conditions. They’ve usually tried other forms of treatment before they come to Gracer Medical Group (GMG).

Before you live another day with an uncomfortable, even disabling condition, contact us to learn about relief. Dr. Richard Gracer works with patients seeking to restore health and vitality through comprehensive pain management from Sacramento to Bakersfield, and here in Bay Area towns like San Jose, Walnut Creek and many others.

Western style medicine is very effective for acute conditions. It focuses on what is dysfunctional and it is vital to know this. Traditional Western medicine works on symptom relief and the end results of specific measurements, such as a bulge on an MRI. It doesn’t always ask why there is a dysfunction and evaluate the overall function of the body’s systems, so it sometimes falls short in treating chronic conditions. Our bodies are so complex that the reasons we are experiencing a dysfunction can often seem unrelated to the presenting symptoms.

At GMG, we ask why.

We strive to understand and treat the cause of chronic conditions, not just the resulting dysfunction. We look at all factors that influence health and then provide a combination of therapies that tap the human body’s amazing ability to heal and correct itself.

Our integrative approach utilizes both conventional and alternative methods that facilitate the body’s innate healing response. We research treatments that are proving helpful in other parts of the country and the world and bring the best of them to our patients. We also participate in studies and research that help to validate the effectiveness of our treatments when possible.

To help you feel better so you can live better, at GMG we:

  • Conduct a thorough diagnostic process.
  • Look at all the factors that could contribute to your chronic condition.
  • Evaluate how well your body’s systems are working.
  • Provide proper multidisciplinary therapy to treat the root cause of your problems.
