Evaluation and Pain Mapping Reviews
"I’m always looking forward to go to therapy not only to alleviate my physical pain but also to enjoy all the staff members who make me feel at home. Blessings to all of them."- A.D. / Google / Jun 17, 2022
"Chris Watson and the rest of the staff acted in a courteous and professional manner. Chris answered all of the questions that I had and explained things in a manner that the lay person could comprehend. Dr. Shroll has given me my quality of life back. After years of pain and pain meds, the bilateral RFA on my L4-L5 and the one on my right sacroiliac have enabled me to resume working on cars and doing various projects around the house. Before, if I worked on my car one day it took three or four days to recuperate. Now I can do things on consecutive days and it doesn’t bother me."- P.D. / Google / Jun 17, 2022
"Both Dr Shroll & P.A. Watson are extremely professional and I’m blessed to have them both work hard to help me with my chronic pain. I would recommend them as two medical professionals I know and trust. I f you’re in pain see either of these men as soon as you can."- T.R. / Google / Jun 17, 2022
"I drive extra miles to be seen at the New Braunfels office. The staff here is very friendly and accommodating. There is a large waiting room with plenty of space between chairs. Medically speaking, the staff is very professional. PA Watson will do anything he can to get your pain under control. Every month he checks in with how you are doing and is willing to discuss treatment options with you. Love this place!"- M.A. / Google / Jun 18, 2022

When you visit our San Antonio office for your appointment, we will conduct your exam on-site in one of our spacious treatment rooms to allow for your privacy and comfort. To begin, we will evaluate your medical history and your current symptoms to better understand what may be the cause of your pain. After your evaluation, we will conduct the pain mapping part of your examination. In this assessment, we will utilize a specific modality that emits small electrical currents to identify the specific location of your pain and discomfort. Once this is complete, we will evaluate our findings and talk with you about which treatment options we may recommend. The suggested procedures will vary based upon your underlying condition but may include physical therapy, steroid injections, nerve blocks, or pain medication.
