What is pain management about?
The overall goal with pain management is relieving or managing a patient’s pain so the patient can enjoy a mobile, active, healthy lifestyle. Some patients suffering from chronic pain want solutions that are either noninvasive or minimally invasive. These patients need alternatives to surgery, so they opt for current pain management techniques instead. For example, physical therapy can be amazingly effective for patients like these, and there are a great number of minimally invasive interventional pain management techniques too.
What techniques do pain management clinics use?
Here at Modern Pain Management, we can provide minimally invasive interventional techniques, nerve ablation, medications, physical therapy, and more. In fact, a combination of treatments may be most effective for you and provide comprehensive pain management.
Here’s a list of some of the treatments and services we provide:
- Epidural steroid injections – These can help relieve back, arm, neck, or leg pain that’s caused by inflamed spinal nerves due to disc herniation or spinal stenosis.
- Facet joint/medial branch injections – These can treat pain arising from facet joints in the spine.
- SI joint injections – Sacroiliac joint injections/blocks used to either diagnose or treat low back pain or sciatica symptoms associated with sacroiliac joint dysfunction.
- Radiofrequency ablation/COOLIEF – A minimally invasive treatment option that targets the nerves that transmit pain signals; also, COOLIEF is FDA-cleared for treating osteoarthritis knee pain.
- Trigger point/muscle injections – To treat painful areas of muscle that have trigger points, or knots of muscle.
- Discography/IDET – Discography is a diagnostic procedure done to identify disc problems, and intradiscal electrothermal therapy (IDET) is a complementary treatment for spinal disc-related chronic low back pain.
