Chronic pain can be debilitating, severely impacting someone’s quality of life and mental health.

With so many choices, deciding the best treatment for those with chronic pain can be challenging. Thankfully our pain specialists are here to help.

Nerve Blocks for Pain Relief: Fast and Effective Treatment

Nerve blocks involve the precise injection of a local anesthetic into specific nerves, effectively blocking pain signals from reaching the central nervous system. This minimally invasive procedure serves as a treatment option for acute pain relief and a diagnostic tool to identify the source of pain.

During a nerve block procedure, the anesthetic injection provides temporary pain relief lasting approximately 1 to 2 weeks. Multiple injections may be required for long-term pain management, as individual responses can vary.

Facts about Nerve Blocks:

  • Nerve blocks aid in identifying the origin of pain, assisting healthcare providers in formulating an accurate treatment plan.
  • While there may be minor side effects such as elevated blood sugar, soreness, bleeding, or itching, nerve blocks are generally considered safe with minimal risk of complications.
  • Patient experiences with nerve blocks can vary, with some finding immediate relief while others may require multiple injections to achieve optimal results.


If an individual is seeking fast and effective pain relief, they should consider exploring the benefits of nerve blocks as a potential solution and consult a pain specialist to determine if this treatment suits their specific condition.

Pain Management Injections: Effective Relief for Targeted Pain

Pain management injections deliver pain-relieving medication directly to the affected area, providing treatment and identifying the pain source. This therapy includes various types of injection, such as joint, trigger point, and steroid injections, all designed to relieve conditions like back pain and neck pain effectively.


  • Pain management injections are most effective with physical therapy, maximizing their overall benefits.
  • Injections are fast procedures typically performed at the office of an interventional pain doctor, allowing patients to return home shortly after the treatment.
  • The duration of pain relief varies, with some patients experiencing relief within a few hours after the procedure, while others may require up to two weeks for the full effect to occur.

If an individual is seeking targeted pain relief, they should consider the benefits of pain management injections and consult a pain specialist to explore this effective treatment option and discuss how it can suit their needs.

Joint Injections for Treating Joint Pain: Radiofrequency Ablation

Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) is a minimally invasive procedure that utilizes radiofrequency heat to “burn” pain-carrying nerves, interrupting the transmission of pain signals to the brain. This outpatient treatment allows patients to resume normal activities within 24 to 72 hours after the ablation.

Facts about RFA:

  • RFA is an effective procedure for treating various conditions, including neck pain, back pain, and arthritis, providing targeted relief for joint-related pain.
  • Most patients experience pain relief within ten days after the RFA, with some even obtaining immediate relief.
  • The pain-relieving effects of RFA can last anywhere from 9 months to over two years, offering significant relief and improved quality of life.
  • RFA is considered a safe procedure with minimal risks. Although temporary pain, skin burns, numbness, infection, and allergic reactions are possible side effects, they are infrequent.

If an individual is seeking effective relief from joint pain, considering radiofrequency ablation is a viable treatment option. Consulting with a pain specialist can help determine if RFA suits their specific condition, allowing them to experience long-lasting pain relief and improved well-being.

Spinal Cord Stimulation: Effective Long-Term Pain Relief

Spinal cord stimulation (SCS) involves implanting a small device beneath the skin, delivering electrical pulses that intercept pain signals before reaching the brain. Extensive studies have demonstrated this procedure’s high effectiveness and safety, providing long-term pain relief without the need for medication or invasive procedures. SCS is particularly beneficial for patients seeking alternatives to surgery or those who have not found relief through other therapies.

Facts about SCS:

  • According to studies, SCS is suitable for treating chronic pain in the back, neck, or limbs, with 50 to 80% of patients experiencing long-term relief.
  • The SCS device can be easily controlled with a remote, allowing patients to power it on/off and adjust settings as needed.
  • SCS is a same-day procedure, with most patients returning home on the day of implantation.

Spinal Cord Stimulation (SCS) presents a promising solution for individuals seeking effective and medication-free relief from chronic pain. Consulting with a pain specialist allows exploration of this minimally invasive procedure to determine its suitability for long-term pain management.
