At Arizona Pain Specialists, we are passionate about treating those who suffer from pain. We empathize with chronic pain’s burden on you and those closest to you. We provide life-changing, intelligent, and comprehensive pain treatments.
Inspired by a close family member’s personal battle with severe debilitating pain, our founding physicians—Dr. Paul Lynch and Dr. Tory McJunkin—are idealistic about practicing pain medicine “the right way.” Arizona Pain Specialists is the realization of a dream that started over a decade ago. The practice was founded to be the premier pain program in the country. Our passion for comprehensive pain management and world-class care are the core beliefs of the entire practice. We are guided by the simple question: “Is this the treatment we would want for our Mom or Dad if they were in pain?” Our physicians measure among the best in the country. They are double board-certified, teach at a national level, and are trained in the country’s leading interventional pain fellowships. Our comprehensive team approach includes on-site chiropractic care, acupuncture, behavioral therapy, an open-MRI, and a procedure center.
