Our pain management specialist at Advanced Orthopedic Specialists specializes in providing care for those suffering from acute and chronic pain.

Involving specialized procedures to treat and manage chronic pain, pain management is an area of specialty that helps patients who suffer ongoing discomfort from conditions and disorders, such as chronic low back pain, neck pain, complex regional pain syndrome, or muscle and bone pain.

The practice of pain management uses an array of treatment methods for chronic pain, because the pain experienced can vary from mild to excruciating, episodic to continuous, and be inconvenient to completely incapacitating.

Common pain management techniques include:

  • Drug therapy (analgesics, anti-inflammatories, narcotic medicines will not be started or maintained, etc.)
  • Trigger point injections
  • Joint injections (with and without steroids)
  • Ultrasound and X-ray guided injections
  • Spinal injections
  • Epidural, sacroiliac, facet joint, and nerve blocks
  • Interventional procedures
  • Physical exercise
  • Stretching and strengthening exercises
  • Ice and/or heat therapy
  • Stress management
  • Psychological measures (biofeedback)

At Advanced Orthopedic Specialists, our pain management doctor understands that chronic pain forces you to live an adjusted and restrained lifestyle. Our pain management specialist will work with you to assess your condition and develop a treatment plan specific to your needs.
