Traditional and alternative pain management treatments are essential for any comprehensive care approach when recovering from injury or surgery. Our experienced care team is well versed in today’s most effective pain management treatments and alternative medicines to create a care regimen that meets your unique needs.
What Is Pain Management?
Pain management therapies involve evaluating your condition and applying different treatment approaches to help you feel better. We take a patient-centered, holistic approach to pain management, considering your entire medical history, desired outcomes, and care preferences. It would be our pleasure to partner with you to help you live the pain-free life you deserve.
What Are the Pain Management Options?
Trigger Point Injections
These injections take only a few minutes to complete. They treat muscle spasms and knots by reducing the inflammation and pain of the tiny tender knots in your muscles and fascia.
The injection will feel like a pinch and only take a few minutes. Post-injection pain, while uncommon, can occur. It typically resolves itself within a few days. Once the inflammation is reduced, massage therapy and physiotherapy techniques help to eliminate the pain and rehabilitate the muscle fibers.
Natural Joint Injections
One of the best natural injection therapies available for osteoarthritis of the knee or shoulder. These injections are an excellent source for joint preservation and lubrication.
These hyaluronic acid injections have minimal side effects and are performed under X-ray guidance. They go directly to the joint affected by arthritis, with over 90% of the medication absorbed in the joint. We also offer collagen injections that can be used to alleviate muscle and joint pain as well as for aesthetic purposes, like wrinkle reduction.
Lumbar epidural steroid injection effectively treats back pain that radiates to the legs, sciatica, or spine nerve-related pain.
Cervical epidural steroid injection effectively treats neck pain that radiates to the arms or spine nerve-related pain.
Epidural steroid injections reduce pain and inflammation caused by a herniated disc, arthritis, spinal stenosis, or degenerative disc disease.
Facet joints located on the back of the spine often become irritated and inflamed, especially after car accidents.
Facet joint injection helps diagnose the source of the pain and relieve pain and inflammation.
Radio Frequency Ablation
Is a minimally invasive procedure that blocks the nerve fibers carrying pain signals to the brain. It can provide lasting relief for people with chronic pain, especially in the lower back, neck, and arthritic joints.
If you suffer recurrent pain and you’ve experienced good relief with a nerve block injection, you may be a candidate for radiofrequency ablation.
Which Treatment Is Right for Me?
Because each patient is unique, we don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all approach to pain management. With this in mind, we work closely with each patient to identify the best course of treatment for their pain and discomfort and supplement that treatment with the appropriate pain procedures.
With a wide variety of traditional pain medications and alternative options that have demonstrated excellent outcomes, we help craft a personalized pain management regimen for each client.
What Can I Expect From the Treatment?
During your visit, our double-board certified pain management physician, Dr. Amit Mehta, will evaluate your needs and determine your best option. In some cases, a combination of treatments and chiropractic care may be the best option.
