Ukiah Valley Rural Health Center and Ukiah Valley Medical Center welcome Michael T. Young, DO, as he comes to the area on May 16 to open a pain clinic. Chronic pain can be a seemingly insurmountable obstacle to living a full and active life, but with modern pain management approaches, there is hope.
In addition to more conservative pain therapies, Dr. Young has focused on implantable pain therapies, with training specific to these techniques that stimulate nerves and release drugs inside the body.
In the office, Dr. Young will be able to address joint issues such as shoulder, knee, acromioclavicular, and costochondral. He’s also experienced with carpal tunnel, trigger finger, osteopathic manipulation treatment and botox injection for migraine.
In surgery, Dr. Young has a wide variety of specialties from nerve root block and epidural injections to spinal cord stimulation and lumbar facet diagnostic injections.
Young, a doctor of osteopathy, was previously a chief resident at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine’s Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. Most recently, he received training as a fellow at the Pain and Rehabilitative Consultants Medical Group in Oakland.
Dr. Young’s formal education includes undergraduate work at UC Santa Cruz, post-baccalaureate work at Harvard University, and he received his DO degree from Touro University College of Osteopathic Medicine.
The new pain clinic is located at 260 Hospital Drive, Suite 103. For more information or an appointment, call 707-463-7490.
