Millions of Americans suffer from chronic pain that persists longer than six months. When an individual has chronic pain, pain signals can remain active in the brain and nervous system for weeks, months or even years. This can take both a physical and emotional toll. Unfortunately, chronic pain sometimes leads to an addiction to drugs or alcohol.
Dr. Howard Kornfeld, a nationally recognized pain management specialist and medical doctor, has helped hundreds of people deal more effectively with chronic pain. Dr. Kornfeld and his team at Recovery Without Walls design a personalized program for each patient, utilizing the latest research on advanced pharmacology,exceptional psychotherapy and integrative healing methods. Recovery Without Walls has helped patients suffering from: back pain, fibromyalgia, neuropathic (nerve) pain, cancer pain, arthritis and many other chronic pain conditions.
Anxiety, stress, depression, anger and fatigue interact in complex ways with chronic pain and may decrease the body’s production of natural painkillers. For that reason, the Recovery Without Walls pain management program incorporates pain management therapy, meditation, acupuncture, therapeutic massage and nutritional supplements as appropriate.

Dr. Kornfeld has pioneered the use of Buprenorphine/Suboxone® in the United States for the relief of chronic pain. A semi synthetic opiate created in England in the early 1970s, Buprenorphine has been proven to provide better pain dampening effects than Vicodin® or OxyContin®, while minimizing the possibility of overdose and addiction. When appropriate for his patients, Dr. Kornfeld prescribes Buprenorphine to help them deal more effectively with chronic pain.
