Titusville Pain Management Clinic
Strategies for Reducing & Coping With Pain
Pain is the body’s most obvious way of letting us know something
is wrong with it. Unfortunately, once we realize there’s a problem
the pain doesn’t stop, and we’re propelled to do anything
we can to make it stop. Pain management is a medical service where a doctor
searches for the source of the problem and comes ups with a unique treatment
plan to help the patient cope with the issue, or eliminate it entirely.
Pain management treatment can greatly vary depending on the specific cause
of the pain. In many cases, a combination of medication, interventional
procedures and physical therapy are utilizes. In some cases, surgery may
be required as well.
What is an Interventional Procedure?
Interventional procedures are diagnostic operations in which a doctor looks
directly inside a patient’s body to diagnose the cause of their
pain. There are a variety of methods to accomplish this, including surgery,
using instruments that go inside the body, and electromagnetic radiation.
Titusville Area Hospital uses the following interventional procedures:
- Facet steroid injections
- Joint injections
- Epidural injections
- Trigger point injections
- Nerve blocks
- Radiofrequency treatments
- Spinal cord stimulators
- Intrathecal pump implants
- Peripheral nerve stimulators
- Tailored medication management
Many of these methods are minimally invasive, and our team listens carefully
to our patients to create a treatment plan that is comfortable for them.
