About Arizona Pain

At Arizona Pain, 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 is the realization of a dream that started many years 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, and a procedure center. Read the entire story of the founding of Arizona Pain.

“…when pain is to be born, a little courage helps more than much knowledge, a little human sympathy more than much courage, and the least tincture of the love of God more than all.” — C.S. Lewis

The Founding of Arizona Pain

College friends Tory McJunkin and Paul Lynch on a mission trip in Mexico.

When Tory McJunkin and Paul Lynch started Arizona Pain it was the realization of a dream that started over a decade ago. Tory and Paul’s friendship began their freshman year of college. They were both pre-med and had many of the same classes. While intense competition is the landscape in most college pre-med courses Paul and Tory decided cooperation was a better plan. During college they studied together during the week and prayed together on the weekends. Four years later, they were off to The University of Oklahoma College of Medicine.

Life took an unexpected turn, as Paul’s mother-in-law was diagnosed with advanced pancreatic cancer. Paul spent weeks trying to find relief for her debilitating pain and during the process learned about interventional pain procedures. Shortly before medical school graduation, he realized that this was his calling in life and immediately drove to Tory’s house. Tory heard the excitement in his friend’s voice as he said “I know what I’m going to do with my life!” Tory listened with growing interest and firmly said, “Me too.” Paul laughed in disbelief saying “Seriously, I’m going to become an anesthesiologist and then study pain management. This is what I’m supposed to do, I just know it.” Tory stepped closer and with a tone that was unmistakably serious said “I know, and this is the specialty I was made to practice too, I just didn’t know it existed. I’m also going to pursue this career, whatever it takes!”

And that’s exactly what they did. They obtained positions in top-tier programs – University of Iowa and New York University, and then each secured a position at the most coveted Interventional Pain Program.

Tory and Paul’s dream to work together and bring a human side to the practice of medicine is finally a reality. Arizona Pain is the culmination of years of prayer and hard work and the combined vision of two men who are trying to make a difference.

Together they also started the Arizona Pain Foundation as a way to reach the community at large, both locally and internationally. Founded in 2009, the foundation’s mission is to share the love of God by bringing compassion, healing, and resources to those in need. This is accomplished by supporting international missionaries, supporting local nonprofit community work, and promoting prescription drug abuse resistance to youth in Arizona.

Come be a part of the vision.
