Most individuals who suffer from chronic pain have utilized medications, psychological and physical therapies, acupuncture, and conventional treatments. Although many will find relief in these treatments, there are those for whom these solutions don't provide long enough relief or any relief at all. And those individuals are turning to an interventional pain specialist to find the relief they need.
Interventional pain specialists are able to treat different non-spinal and spinal conditions due to their extensive training. A combination of neurological and musculoskeletal anatomy knowledge enables them to use tools such as musculoskeletal and neurological imaging, physical exams, ultrasound, and electrodiagnostic testing to pinpoint the cause of the patient's pain and apply pain management procedures to alleviate and reduce one's pain.
All of Pain’s specialists will determine what level of pain a patient is experiencing and the right treatment for their condition. Some of these treatments include facet joint injections, PRP therapy, prolotherapy, epidural steroid injections, nerve blocks (interrupting the flow of pain signals along specific nervous system pathways), and neuroaugmentation (including spinal cord stimulation and peripheral nerve stimulation), and trigger point injections among other treatments.
