Pain is a common affliction, a daily burden for more than 70 million people in the United States.
The Pain Management Center was founded with the goal of helping people return to normal, productive living. Care is provided by anesthesiologists who are trained in the field of pain management, working in conjunction with nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists, dietitians and social workers. Together we develop personalized treatment plans for patients suffering from a variety of illness, including:
Treatments offered in the center include radio frequency ablations, interventional pain therapies, such as epidural injections with and without sedation, trigger point injections, neuroablation, disc decompression, spinal cord stimulators, morphine pain pumps and other injection therapies.
- Back, head or neck pain
- Neuralgia (including shingles)
- Reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD)
- Cancer pain
- Facial pain
- Rib fracture pain
- Phantom limb pain
- Musculoskeletal pain
- Pain from paraplegia or quadriplegia
- Post-trauma soft tissue injury
The Pain Management Center uses a multidisciplinary approach to treatment, including physical therapy, nutritional counseling, occupational therapy, lab work, and workmanís compensation evaluations as needed.
To better accommodate the growing number of patients seen at the Liberty Hospital Pain Management Center, the facility recently relocated to a larger space in the Medical Plaza East Building. The new space almost tripled the existing Centerís size by offering six examination rooms, two procedure room, five recovery bays and a spacious lobby/waiting room.
