Advanced Physical Medicine was envisioned by Dr. Wilson as a comprehensive & complementary pain management clinic to reduce pain, restore function and mobility to our patient’s lives. We partner with our patients to help them achieve a pain-free high quality of life. We value a patient-centered, innovative team-approach.
Patient-centered: Pain is unique and we help you identify solutions for your particular challenges. Our patients continually say that the staff truly connects with them and they feel the positive, friendly environment contributes to their healing. In 2014, Blue Cross Blue Shield awarded us the Patient Centered Medical Home Specialist designation due to our commitment to giving you the best care possible.
Innovative: Our team continuously seeks out the newest and most effective treatments for controlling your pain. It’s this commitment to your quality of life and innovative care that provides breakthroughs in helping you get back to doing what you love.
Team approach: Having a team of physical and massage therapists on staff allows Dr. Wilson to be personally involved in the whole process of your healing. We also involve your primary care doctor to streamline your journey to a healthy life.
Dr. Stephen Wilson, M.D.
Dr. Wilson is a highly respected medical provider who successfully combines traditional medicine with complementary and alternative medicine for nearly 25 year’s. He is board certified in both Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation and Pain Medicine. His strong empathy for those suffering in pain led him to pursue a second board certification in Pain Medicine in an effort to manage their pain and improve their quality of life. His care philosophy is to get to the root cause of pain then provide a comprehensive approach to restore function and reduce or eliminate pain; since there is no one way to treat pain.
He found tremendous benefits in alternative treatments to complement his training in Pain Medicine. He then became certified in Medical Acupuncture and trained in various complementary medicine services such as Prolotherapy and Intramuscular Stimulation, both geared at helping the body heal itself. He’s also recently added Regenerative Medicine (Platelet Rich Plasma) to his extensive treatment options. His Comprehensive Pain Management practice, Advanced Physical Medicine, also incorporates Physical Therapy, MLS laser therapy and Medical Massage therapy. Together his team is committed to providing high quality care delivered with compassion.
Dr. Wilson has been married for over 25 years and has 3 children. He is committed to leading by example and lives a healthy lifestyle which includes a plant based diet, daily exercise (cardio, basketball, yoga), and the occasional long distance bike races.
