Welcome to the Lemons Center

The Lemons Center’s highly-personalized client care works very well in tandem with the traditional Medical Model approach. When the Medical Pain Model has accomplished all it can do, but help is still needed for chronic pain, we use our multi-disciplined approach from the Behavioral Science Model.

We integrate our comprehensive, six-week behavioral pain management day program, individual behavioral pain management care program, chronic pain physical therapy and medication reduction programs into team-recommended plans.

These proven services provide four major patient benefits:1) improved quality of life; 2) reduced utilization of healthcare services (less doctor visits; trips to the hospital; etc);  3)  reduced pain; and 4) significant cost savings.

Testimonial

"I have suffered from severe, chronic migraine headaches for many years and have sought relief from a wide range of practitioners, both conventional and alternative, both in-town and out-of-town, without any effective results. The headaches have been so severe that they have resulted in total disability from work as managing partner of my law firm. The Lemons Center is the first (and only) place that has understood all aspects of the problem, retained the necessary staff and developed an appropriate and effective program to deal with the management of chronic pain of all types. They have been honest about informing their patients that there is no "cure" for the chronic pain we are experiencing but, they have been equally forthright about telling us that our lives can be improved immeasurably by learning more about our pain and by adhering to a daily, multi-phase pain management regimen. As a recent "graduate" of the program, I would highly recommend it to those who are ready and willing to embark upon a program that has the capability of producing effective results."
