Rehabilitation is a fundamental part of recovering from an acute injury and managing chronic pain. Our physicians, that are board certified in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, guide the rehabilitation process by coordinating with physical therapists, chiropractors, massage therapists, and acupuncturists to facilitate optimal recovery.
Interventional Pain Management
For patients suffering from severe pain who cannot tolerate rehabilitation or when rehabilitative efforts do not adequately resolve symptoms, interventional pain management offers another avenue for relief. NWSPM provides a variety of minimally invasive procedures that can significantly improve pain and increase activity tolerance.
Pharmacological Pain Management
A variety of medication options are also available for the treatment of acute and chronic pain conditions. Our fellowship-trained physicians who subspecialize in Pain Medicine can assist patients in finding the appropriate medication regimen to provide pain relief and improve function.
As chronic pain has deleterious effects on the body, NWSPM embraces a multidisciplinary approach in order to provide care for the whole patient—the body, mind, and soul. Our well-rounded team of providers collaborates within a holistic program that emphasizes treating both the mind and body in order to maximize outcomes.
Radiofrequency Ablation uses precision thermal lesioning to destroy facet joints in the cervical and lumbar spine. In carefully selected patients, this minimally invasive procedure can relieve unremitting back and neck pain that is initially unresponsive to conservative measures.
