Pain management is a focus of medicine that addresses chronic pain from disease or an injury. The Spring Hospital specialists offer on-site pain management services to relieve moderate to severe pain that stems from nerve damage, joint disorders, and degenerative diseases.

The pain management specialists take time to diagnose the root cause of your pain using state-of-the-art, on-site diagnostic testing like CT scans and discography. Based on the results of your tests and the severity of your condition, they can use one or more pain management techniques to ease your pain now and in the long-term.
The Spring Hospital physicians offer a variety of in-office pain management services to reduce the severity of your pain and make it easier for you to be physically active.

The specialists also offer medicinal intravenous (IV) therapy under close supervision.
During your initial evaluation, your Spring Hospital provider spends time reviewing your medical history and your symptoms. They may request diagnostic blood work or imaging tests.
Your physician may also use pain mapping. Pain mapping involves a series of diagnostic tests using interventional pain management techniques, such as nerve blocks, to accurately pinpoint the location of your pain.
Based on the results of your testing, your physician can determine the best course of treatment for fast and long-lasting pain relief. They may offer in-office injection therapies that deliver anesthetic and anti-inflammatory medications directly into your joints, spine, or nerves.
Your provider continues to monitor your treatment progress to ensure you’re enjoying a pain-free, active life. They can work with you on lifestyle changes that reduce your risk for additional episodes of pain and the progression of a degenerative condition.
