    Collapse Overview
    Jessica Oswald is one of few dual trained Emergency Medicine and Pain Management physicians in the country. She is a former professional surfer and cancer survivor who specializes in interventional pain procedures and lifestyle modifications that help patients return to function. She favors minimizing opiates and uses a multidisciplinary and anti-inflammatory approach to pain that includes complimentary alternatives, exercise, psychologic counseling and mindfulness.

    Dr. Oswald evaluates and treats both acute and chronic painful conditions plus provides a comprehensive set of procedures aimed to help patients return to activities that bring enjoyment. Procedures include, but are not limited to the following:

    Fluoroscopic guided spine and other procedures
    Ultrasound guided nerve, bursa and joint injections
    Trigger point injections
    Botulinum toxin to head, neck and other muscles.

    Dr. Oswald completed her Emergency Medicine training at the University of California Los Angeles and Pain Medicine fellowship at the University of California San Diego. Her research interests include modalities that help prevent pain from becoming chronic and peripheral nerve stimulation. She has lectured at national conferences on neuromodulation, has presented award winning research on peripheral nerve stimulation, and remains active in teaching medical students, residents and fellows in both the field of Emergency Medicine and Pain Management. In her free time, she enjoys surfing, fishing, hiking and snowboarding.
