Pain Management

Pain Management

Living your life in chronic pain is neither living nor much of a life.  At IPMA, we understand the debilitating effects that pain has on our patients, and we know that pain management is a critical component of the healing process.  Unmitigated pain impacts a patient’s comfort level and subsequent ability to heal.  Studies have shown that chronic pain can lean to emotional pain, depression, lack of sleep, and further physical deterioration.  As such, we specialize in pain management techniques that help sufferers reclaim their lives from the agony of living with pain everyday.

Common Types of Pain We Treat

There are no shortages of possible causes for pain.  Identifying those causes and treating them effectively requires a collaborative effort between the patient and our care givers to arrive at a comprehensive pain management system.  Some of the more common causes for pain and the need for pain mitigation include:

  • Back pain
  • Arthritis
  • Phantom limb pain
  • Neck pain
  • Cancer pain
  • Neuropathic pain
  • Nervous system injury
  • Migraines
  • Post-surgical pain
  • Sciatica

You don’t need to be burdened by the deleterious effects of these conditions when our caring staff at IPMA is available to help you manage that pain.  We tackle these conditions using a unique approach to pain abatement through prescription treatments, anesthetic blocks, and hyperbaric oxygen therapy.

Available Procedures and Treatments

At IPMA, we bring a range of treatment options to the examination table when it comes to helping our patients feel better.  We can provide treatment with narcotics and muscle relaxants, as well as specialized medicine for a host of medical conditions.

Additionally, we offer x-ray guided pain blocks which will provide the comfort that our patients so strongly need.

  • Facet injections of the spinal column
  • Selective nerve root injections
  • Epi blocks: Both cervical and lumbar
  • Peripheral nerve blocks
  • Myoblock for muscle spasms

Epidural nerve blocks provide powerful pain relief without the need for surgery or down time.  These safe and effective treatments involve corticosteroid injections into the epidural space of the spinal column.  To ensure the safety of our patients and the accuracy of the procedures, our medical professionals utilize fluoroscopic guidance.

Get ahead of your pain and contact our caring staff at IPMA to discuss the proper treatment regimen for you or your loved ones.  There is absolutely no reason to suffer if you don’t need to, so make the decision to stop suffering today with a call to IPMA.
