About Blue Ridge Chronic Pain Center

Perhaps you have been to the doctor with symptoms and the examination and lab test came back normal. What happens next?

As an integrative functional medicine practice, we offer our patients safe and proven therapeutic options along with conventional medicine treatments to target the source of illness or pain. Having the ability to merge alternative modalities of healing based on the patient’s unique needs or symptoms improves our ability to diagnose and treat ailments. The ultimate goal is to improve a patient’s overall health and create a future of wellness.

Blue Ridge Chronic Pain Center’s innovative approach to whole body wellness starts with evaluating all aspects of a person’s health to determine the root cause of illness. We believe finding the root cause of illness and addressing it directly helps our patients achieve the balance that ultimately leads to long-term health and wellness.

Our Personalized Approach

There are numerous ways to apply the concepts of Functional and Integrative Medicine to an individual patient. Below is a summary of our process.

Health History

Functional and integrative medicine begins with you. The patient-centered focus of the functional medicine model allows the physician to truly get to know you and your health history.


A functional medicine practitioner knows that each person is unique and has their own set of medical data that is needed to make an assessment. Many patients seek functional medicine to help solve questions left unanswered by the conventional medicine approach. Sometimes patients are neither sick from a pathological perspective nor 100% well in terms of how they feel.
