Pain Therapies

Our Pain Management Center offers a wide range of innovative treatment options, from non-invasive therapies to cutting-edge procedures that reduce or eliminate pain. Interventions include:

  • Ultrasound-guided nerve blocks - Your doctor uses ultrasound technology to precisely locate, isolate and inject medication into various nerves in the body. The medication "turns off" pain signals to the brain, providing quick, temporary relief. This technique is often used for intense pain following knee replacement and other orthopedic surgeries.

  • Cryoanalgesia - A freezing sensation is utilized to numb nerves and stop pain.
     
  • Radio frequency rhizotomy - Radio waves, transmitted by a tiny needle, apply extreme heat to nerves to alleviate pain.
     
  • Infusion pumps and catheters - In cases of severe pain, these implantable devices deliver medication to areas surrounding the spinal cord.
     
  • Trigger-point injections - This procedure treats muscle spasms or "knots" that form when muscles fail to relax. A local anesthetic is injected into the area by a physician.
     
  • Epidural steroid injections - This type of injection is commonly recommended for sciatica pain, arm pain, and forms of lower back and leg pain.
     
  • Joint injections - Anti-inflammatory medication is injected into joints to treat arthritis, tendinitis, gout and other painful joint conditions.
     
  • Pain Medication (patient-controlled or continuous epidural) - There are many ways of delivering analgesia, or pain medication. In some cases, pills may be taken by the patient at home. In other instances, a physician injects medication between the tissues or membranes outside the spinal cord.
