Treatment from Knowledgeable Practitioners
Our experienced pain doctors and staff use a variety of options to help relieve patients’ joint-related pain. So that we can tailor care to meet your specific needs, we start with an assessment of your physical condition. Based on the results, we make a diagnosis and recommend the various treatment options available.
Relieving Your Joint Discomfort Is Our Goal
Many patients experiencing joint pain receive positive results from steroid injections that reduce inflammation, joint lubrication that creates a cushion, and nerve ablation that blocks pain signals to the brain. Also, any of these options can be used for patients who request arthritis treatment. Reach out to us to schedule an appointment for joint pain management. During your visit, we will discuss your pain and how we suggest treating it.
Guided Steroid Injections
Steroid injections from our clinic are one of the most immediate ways patients can find relief from pain. By using ultrasound techniques, our doctor is able to inject an anesthetic and steroid into the epidural space of your joint. This steroid then decreases the inflammation in the area while the anesthetic interrupts the pain signal to the brain.
Hyaluronic Acid Joint Lubrication
Hyaluronic acid injections are one of the smartest solutions for patients suffering from osteoarthritis. This fluid, which is already found in your joints, adds more lubrication to reduce the amount of pain you feel while also enhancing your mobility. Physical therapy is commonly recommended to go along with these injections so you can enjoy a more complete, comprehensive treatment plan.
Peripheral Nerve Radiofrequency Ablations
Patients who have received a joint replacement can sometimes experience joint pain. Using our radiofrequency procedure, we are able to help alleviate that pain. How does it work? Our doctors use a radiofrequency needle that sends an electrical current to the specific nerves causing your pain. This creates a heat lesion that destroys the targeted nerves. The final outcome is they can no longer transmit pain signals to your brain.
Stem Cell/Regenerative Medicine Therapies
One of the newest procedures in the pain management field is the use of stem cells for regenerative purposes. The goal of regenerative medicine in North Florida, and therefore our stem cell therapies, is to repair and replace abnormal tissue to reduce or eliminate inflammation. When injected into the body, stem cells can promote joint repair.
