Welcome

Pain is inevitable. Suffering is optional.

Arch Advanced Pain Management ( AAPM ) is a clinic dedicated to the treatment of acute / chronic pain and sports medicine /work related pain issues. The staff combined has decades of experience in this area.

Pain affects more Americans than diabetes, heart disease and cancer combined. In 2011, at least 100 million adult Americans had chronic pain conditions, a conservative estimate since it does not include recent pain or children in pain. Chronic pain is pain that exist beyond the normal healing process.

Arch Advanced Pain Management ( AAPM ) is a holistic pain program that takes the entire patient into focus. Patients seeking treatment at AAPM are assured of receiving only the finest and up-to-date care through the use of rehabilitative techniques, imaging, medications, and interventional techniques when necessary.

AAPM was founded by Dr. James Sturm. He is triple board certified in Anesthesiology, Pain Medicine and Interventional Pain Management. He performed his anesthesia training at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation and his pain fellowship at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation in 1996. The pain fellowship at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation was the largest in the world.

Our mission goals are:

  1. A comprehensive patient evaluation to determine the source of pain generation.
  2. To offer therapies and solutions to our patients based on a holistic approach keeping in mind the risk and benefits of those therapies.
  3. To constantly seek out the most advanced treatments for our patients.
  4. To provide care in an understanding environment.

It is important not to let pain become chronic. Seeking early care can increase the success rate of treatment.

We are accepting new patients without physician referrals. Copies of your old medical records and a physician referral, however does provide insight as to what has failed in the past. We are open from Monday – Friday 8AM to 5PM and at times on Saturdays.
