Interventional Pain Medication

During our interventional pain care, patients are given a thorough evaluation to determine the source of their pain, and medically-responsible treatment plans are tailored to each patient. The type of treatment options recommended by our interventional pain specialists is based on the location, source, and severity of your pain. We first use technologically advanced equipment to diagnose the source, we then customize a goal-oriented treatment plan focused on your timely and safe return to an active lifestyle.

Musculoskeletal Issues Addressed:

  1. Back and neck pain
  2. Joint pain
  3. Osteoarthritis
  4. Carpal Tunnel
  5. Tendonitis, including tennis elbow
  6. Fractures and sprains

Treatments Available:

Viscosupplementation

Viscosupplementation is a procedure that involves a live x-ray guided injection of natural and synthetic gel-like fluid into the knee joint. Also known as hyaluronates, they work to provide a higher level of viscosity within the knee. By increasing the lubrication in the knee joint, this will eliminate the friction from bone and cartilage thus eliminating pain. Research indicates that continued use of viscosupplementation decreases knee pain and can slow down the worsening of knee arthritis. The procedure is almost always covered by insurance and Medicare.

Regenerative PRP Growth Factor Injections

Platelet Rich Plasma or PRP is blood plasma with concentrated platelets. The concentrated platelets found in PRP contain huge reservoirs of bioactive proteins, including growth factors that are vital to initiate and accelerate tissue repair and regeneration. These bioactive proteins initiate:

  1. Connective tissue healing in bone
  2. Tendon and ligament regeneration and repair
  3. The development of new blood vessels
  4. Stimulation of the wound healing process

It may take several weeks for PRP injections to begin working. We recommend a series of 3 injections roughly 3-4 weeks apart. Though outcomes vary from patient to patient, most patients feel significant improvement with long-lasting results.

Trigger Point Injections

Trigger points are uncomfortable knots that form in the muscles. These knots are felt beneath the skin and cause radiating pain due to irritation of the surrounding nerves. We offer the widest array of trigger point medications from typical cortisone to alternatives such as plant extract injections, sterile glucose-based solutions, and Botox.

Trigger point injections have been able to release years of chronic pain with relief felt after just one injection and often a complete resolution of pain after a limited series of injections, allowing the nervous system to re-train itself. Trigger Point Injections can be combined with other treatments based on your specific condition. Our medical professionals will develop a treatment plan personalized to you.
