For years, Janie Ehle PA-C saw her parents struggle with regular daily activities due to arthritis in their backs, hips and knees. While completing her physician assistant studies at Shenandoah University, she saw numerous patients recover much of their daily functions thanks to treatments like joint injections and other non-surgical pain treatments.
“I decided that I wanted to be a part of this exciting field of pain management,” she said. “…I am very excited about the variety of pain management treatments available now and how patients have an increasing amount of effective, non-surgical options.”
Janie joined the National Spine and Pain Centers Manassas office in June 2019. “I am thrilled about the opportunity to make a positive impact in patients’ lives by working with them to treat their pain in order to get them back to doing the things they love to do,” she said.
Also holding a bachelor’s degree from Messiah College, she previously has worked as a blood donor specialist at Inova Blood Donor Services and a phlebotomist for Medstar Franklin Square Hospital.
Her approach to medication management is to work closely with each individual patient to come up with a treatment plan that is tailored to their specific needs and to follow up with them often to assess the effectiveness.
“I believe that a caring, empathetic, encouraging and empowering provider can be so beneficial to a patient who is in pain, whether that pain is acute or chronic, regardless of the cause,” she said. “I feel that being that type of provider can often make a big difference in the outcome of the course of treatment.”
Away from the office, Janie can be found outside either mountain biking or rock climbing. She also loves to paint portraits, take on building and/or renovation projects and spending time with her family, friends and two pets: a dog and cat.
