Pain Management

Pain management is important for ongoing pain control, especially if you suffer with long-term or chronic pain.

After getting a pain assessment, our doctor can prescribe pain medicine or other pain treatments to help you get pain relief.

Pain management can be simple or complex, depending on the cause of the pain. An example of pain that is typically less complex would be nerve root irritation from herniated disk with pain radiating down the leg. This condition can often be alleviated with an epidurial steroid injection.

Sometimes, however, the pain does not go away. This can require a wide variety of skills and techniques to treat the pain. These skills and techniques include:

  • Interventional procedures 
  • Medication management  
  • Physical therapy
  • Alternative therapies
