Our Pain Management Treatments

treatment benefits

Head to Toe Pain Management

This treatment benefits patients who suffer from any sort of chronic or acute pain. Approaches differ depending on the patient’s specific condition using and combining our medical experience with patient education and our state of the art innovations in technology.

epidural injection

An epidural injection is used to deliver anti-inflammatory medicine to and around the spine in order to give temporary relief from pain or inflammation. It is predominantly considered a treatment doctors use to reduce a patient’s swelling while the underlying cause of the condition is being treated.

Steroid injections

Steroid injections

Steroid injections are commonly used to treat one or two local areas of inflammation. When oral drugs or physical therapy are not effective, doctors can deliver a high dose of medication through steroid injections to the area of pain which may prove to be a better treatment option for you.

Pain pump

Pain pump (Intrathecal) is a method of delivering pain medications directly to the spinal cord. First, the pump is surgically implanted into the skin and then medication in the pump is added every so often by injecting it through the skin into the pump reservoir.

Botox injections

Certain types of injections are proven to provide relief against headaches to patients who suffer from migraines. They have been licensed to treat chronic migraines by the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA).


Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA) is a minimally invasive procedure that uses radio waves to disrupt nerve signals that cause chronic pain. Radiofrequency ablation directly targets and treats chronic pain and its corresponding symptoms in patients.

Carpal Tunnel Injection

A Carpal Tunnel Injection is a method used to help diagnose the source of pain and simultaneously provide relief by delivering anti-inflammatory medication into the carpal tunnel area of the wrist.

Trigger Point Injection

Trigger Point Injections are anti-inflammatory injections which are used to treat a number of conditions. This procedure involves injecting medication directly to the focal areas of muscle spasms that are often located in the upper back and shoulder area.
