Interventional Pain Management

What is pain management?
Today there are so many options to "manage your pain" that it can be confusing and difficult to decide what the best course of care is. Pain management, med management, interventional pain management, non-invasive procedures, minimally invasive procedures, non-surgical orthopedics, regenerative medicine, stimulator trials, etc. etc.. What does it all mean and what is the best option for you?
Our team of medical professionals will take the time to discuss the best course of care for you and make sure that you understand what the problem is, what the plan is, and what outcomes you can expect. Because unless we can reduce or eliminate your pain, why bother!
It all seems so complicated but living pain free is not impossible; however, it does require the right team with the right approach and just as important, a commitment on your part.
So if you are ready to take the steps necessary to resume normal daily activities with family and friends, then I have a question for you:
Do you want someone to manage your pain or help you resolve it all together?

Interventional Pain Management Injections
  • Medial Branch Blocks - an injection of a strong local anesthetic on the medial branch nerves that supply the facet joints (the bony framework of the spine)
  • Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA) – used to reduce pain using an electrical current produced by a radio wave to heat up a small area of nerve tissue, in order to decrease pain signals from that specific area
  • Epidural Steroid Injection (ESI) A minimally invasive procedure that can help relieve neck, arm, back, and leg pain caused by a variety of issues, including inflamed spinal nerves. Medicines are delivered to the spinal nerve through the epidural space, the area between the protective covering of the spinal nerves and bony vertebrae. Pain relief may last for several days or even years. The goal is to reduce pain so that you may resume normal activities and a physical therapy program. There are three area levels of ESI’s where an injection may be used: cervical (neck), thoracic (mid-back) and lumbar (lower back).
  • Major Joint Injection – an injection of local anesthetic and steroid deposited into the joint space or capsule; the goal is to provide pain relief by reducing inflammation due to arthritis of the involved joint
