Orthopedic - Pain Management
Pain management takes many forms. Some patients only need simple exercise and help with diet. Others may need surgery. Treatment depends on how bad the pain is, how long you have had it and what kind of treatments have worked in the past. Pain management specialists are trained to identify the root cause of your pain so they can offer more direct and effective treatments. Some common conditions we treat include - Spinal disorder - Chronic pain syndrome - Chronic headache - Fibromyalgia - Sports-related injuries - Musculoskeletal disorder - EMG/NCS (electromyogram/nerve conduction study) follow-up - Myofascial pain syndrome - Peripheral nerve pain Treatments for these conditions may include a combination of medication, in-office steroid injections and surgery. We explore less invasive treatments before recommending surgery. In most cases, a patient only needs surgery when physical therapy and other noninvasive treatments have failed to alleviate the pain. Whatever your treatment requires, are team will work closely with you to create an effective program personalized to you and your pain.
