Welcome to Atlantic Pain Management!  We strive to restore a quality lifestyle to those suffering from chronic pain conditions.  Initial appointments are scheduled by a physician referral only.  Some cases may not benefit from our services; our physician reviews each referral to attempt to establish a potential plan of care.  Please call our office for information about our referral process.  LGBTQIA+ friendly.

Dr. Theodore Nicholas


Dr. Nicholas has been practicing  in eastern North Carolina, specifically the Outer Banks, since 2002.  He is a board-certified physical medicine and rehablitation physician and an American Acadamy of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation fellow.  Physical Medicine physicians, or Physiatrists, treat medical conditions that cause pain or limit function through providing a full spectrum of care, from diagnosing, to treatment and rehabilitation.  It is our goal to restore maximum health and quality of life.   


We will gladly file claims for services to Medicare and Medicare Advantage plans, NC Medicaid, all NC Medicaid managed care plans, Humana, Medcost, Inclusive Health, United Health Care, Optima and many others.

Currently, we do not participate with Aetna, Blue Cross Blue Shield of NC, Tricare, and Wellpath and are not accepting new workers' compensation cases.   Please contact our office with any questions.
