The Headache and Pain Center physicians have been performing pain management procedures since 1985. Each year we perform thousands of procedures.
A comprehensive plan of care and a fully understandable explanation of our recommendations will be provided to you prior to treatment. An individual plan of care may include the recommendations such as behavioral, psychology, neurology, orthopedics, physical therapy, aquatic therapy, and other forms of patient therapy.
We provide a variety of therapies to aid in the management of pain based on your needs, including Interventional Pain Medicine, which involves special procedures to treat and manage pain. Interventional Pain Medicine refers to a group of minimally invasive surgical procedures typically done as an outpatient to alleviate acute, chronic, or cancer-related pain conditions. For persistent pain, not responsive to other types of therapy, consideration may be given for a spinal cord stimulator or, in select cases; nerves can be destroyed by chemical means, freezing, or by applying a heat lesion. In addition, a discogram (injection of dye into the spinal discs) can be used to help diagnose certain types of back pain.
In my profession, I don’t have time for pain. But, when I suffered a back injury, it was difficult to walk, to move…to work, affecting me physically, emotionally and financially, waiting a month for an appointment with a specialist. I was referred to The Headache and Pain Center. They saw me right away. In LESS THAN a month, I was pain free.
