Pain Management Treatments

Interventional Pain Management Procedures

Our pain management procedures are designed to alleviate pain related primarily to back and neck problems, giving patients an attractive alternative to surgery or ongoing pain medication. If you're suffering from pain or headaches caused by bulging or herniated disks or other types of spinal diseases or injuries, including arthritis, we're here to help.

Convenient Outpatient Procedures

We offer various pain management procedures, most of which involve injections of completely safe medications into the spinal region. These outpatient procedures are performed at our office in 20 to 30 minutes using highly localized anesthesia delivered painlessly, combined with real-time x-ray tracking to allow our physicians to be very precise.

What to Expect

We don't think people in pain should have to wait, so we'll schedule an initial consultation for you as quickly as possible. During this consultation, one of our physician specialists will review your situation and your MRI or other diagnostic images, explain our procedures, discuss options and answer any questions you might have.

If you need an MRI or CT scan, we can do it at our office using state-of-the-art equipment.

After the initial consultation, we will move quickly to alleviate your pain with the appropriate procedure. And if follow-up procedures are needed in the future, we will be here to provide them in the same fast, convenient, expert manner.

The goal of the pain management procedures we provide is to alleviate or even eliminate pain for a period of time, allowing you to postpone surgery or avoid it altogether, and to escape dependency on long-term pain medication. Physical therapy, lifestyle changes and exercise regimens can often enhance our treatments, making their effects more effective and long-lasting. We will counsel you regarding these possibilities.
