Integrative Pain Management, Sports Medicine and Women’s Care
Dr. Bren Boston, a board-certified physiatrist with a life-long interest in integrative wellness specializes in primary care, women’s health, sports medicine and pain management. She is passionate about taking the time to evaluate and support all aspects of her patient life: The physical, nutritional, emotional as well as hormonal health.
Dr. Boston treats a variety of patients, including teenagers and adults seeking treatment for general wellness, fatigue, colds, perimenopause, menopause, low testosterone, sexually transmitted infections, urinary tract infections, fibromyalgia, insomnia, and musculoskeletal issues like neck or back pain.
She starts each new patient visit that by getting to know her patient’s life journey, dreams and whatever road blocks may be in their way for optimal health and wellbeing. She then performs a thorough physical examination including orthopedic tests, and orders targeted blood work as needed to evaluate their symptoms and overall internal health. She guides patients through finding their optimal diet, exercise, hydration, supplement, and sleep needs. She believes that optimizing these aspects can help prevent pain and injury and slow the aging process. She looks for imbalance in hormones, adrenal function, nutritional deficiency, and gut function if symptoms in these categories are preventing optimal wellness.
