Chronic Pain is a problem which affects many Americans. Treating pain requires utilizing many strategies and techniques.  Just the use of pain medications for treating pain in many cases doesn’t completely control the problem.  The treatment of your pain may be controlled by a variety of advanced pain therapies.  

At FAMC, the Pain Clinic approaches pain employing a multi-faceted approach. After a thorough examination we are able to treat your pain using various therapies which may include injection therapy as a diagnostic strategy for neck and back pain. The injection therapies provided at FAMC include:  Cervicle Facet Blocks, Cervicle Epidural Steroid Injections, Cervicle Intra-muscular Injections, Intra-articular Steroid Joint Injections, Stellate Ganglion Blocks, Intercostal Nerve Blocks, Thoracic Epidural Steroid Injections, Lumbar Epidural Steroid Injections, Hypogasteric Nerve Blocks for treatment of chronic pelvic pain.  Once the diagnostic block has been beneficial in the treatment of chronic pain, advanced pain therapies may be recommended for providing long term pain control/relief.  While medications have limitations due to side effects and tolerance, advanced therapies such as Spinal Cord Stimulation and Radiofrequency Ablation can work along with pharmacologic management in controlling chronic pain.
