What Pain Treatments and Therapies Are Available?
At Marion Pain Management Center, we specialize in the following pain treatments and therapies:
This treatment delivers gentle electric currents to the spinal cord. This will interfere with any pain signals being sent to the brain, producing immediate pain relief. This can be used for a variety of conditions that cause back pain, but is typically used if other treatments fail to produce the desired results.
With this treatment, we target a specific nerve using a needle that emits radiofrequency energy. This blocks pain signals in the nerve for immediate and lasting relief.
This treatment involves the injection of steroids and an anesthetic around the spinal cord, targeting damaged or inflamed nerves that cause pain. These may be used for herniated discs as well as back, leg, neck, or arm pain.
Facet joint injections include steroids and an anesthetic, and are injected into the spine to reduce pain. This treatment is most often used for back pain, and can provide both immediate and long-lasting relief.
Joint injections can help with swelling and joint pain. These also include steroids and an anesthetic for quick and lasting relief. Common joint injection locations include the shoulders, elbows, knees, and ankles.
This treatment is an injection into the lumbar sympathetic nerves, which are located in the lower back. This injection blocks nerve signals to provide instant pain relief. This treatment is most often used to treat leg or back pain, and specifically sciatica.
This treatment is an injection into the stellate ganglion nerves in the neck. This can provide instant pain relief in the head, arms, neck, and chest. Stellate ganglion blocks are often used to treat complex regional pain syndrome.
This is an injection of an anesthetic into a bundle of nerves. By targeting multiple nerves, we can eliminate pain from whole areas of the body. These are typically used to address pain in the legs.
This treatment involves the injection of steroids and an anesthetic into the root of a specific nerve. This can be used to diagnose problematic nerves, as your level of relief will determine if the appropriate nerve was treated or if the source of your pain is elsewhere.
Physical therapy can be a great complement to pain management services. After you relieve pain with our treatments, a physical therapist can help you gradually heal the body to reduce pain in the future. We can provide you with a referral to get started.
