There are many approaches to discover a pain management program that works best for your acute or chronic pain. Apex Pain Specialists offers treatment plans that target the source of the your pain. In order to target a specific pain source, Drs. Massrour and Reddy pinpoint the lesion and then administer a treatment directly to the source.
This form of interventional pain management uses treatment techniques such as facet joint injections, nerve blocks (blocking pain signals to the nervous system), neuroaugmentation (including spinal cord and nerve stimulation) and implantable drug delivery systems. These forms of treatment are most effective in alleviating pain because it isolates the specific area, and administers medicine immediately.
Administering medicine directly to the pain source is possible with the use of advanced imaging techniques called fluoroscopy. Fluoroscopy imaging is used for medications injected via needle and helps guide the needles to the direct source. It also helps doctors understand the spread of the medication within your body.
