Originating in Asia centuries ago, acupuncture is the ancient practice of using thin needles at strategic points on the body to stimulate nerves, muscles and connective tissue for healing. It is used to relieve pain and discomfort by boosting your body’s natural painkillers and increasing blood flow.

Acupuncture is used to treat many types of pain including dental pain, fibromyalgia, lower back pain, neck pain and headaches, including tension and migraine headaches.

This involves injecting local anesthetics and/or anti-inflammatory medications into joints to decrease joint inflammation and pain. Read More

A joint injection is a common treatment method that is performed to manage stiffness and pain that arises in the joints due to inflammation. A typical joint injection usually consists of a combination of a corticosteroid and an anesthetic that target pain as well as inflammation and swelling.

There are a number of joints that are commonly treated through different types of injections. They include facet joints between the vertebrae of the spine, the sacroiliac joint (connects the spine to the hips), ankles, shoulders, and knees.

Immediate pain relief is usually experienced when local anesthetic is injected. This wears off after a few hours. While every patient responds differently, the anti-inflammatory medicine usually begins working in about three to five days and its effect can last for several days to a few months. The procedure can be repeated if needed.

Nerve blocks involve the injection of local anesthetics and/or steroid medication in the vicinity of nerves to decrease pain from an area of the body. These can be therapeutic or diagnostic. Read More

A nerve block procedure involves an injection of medication in or around a nerve. Nerve blocks numb the nerves that are touched by the drugs. This relieves pain by interrupting the pain signal sent by the nerves to the brain.

Therapeutic nerve blocks are used as treatment for pain. Along with numbing medication, steroid medication is also injected which can often provide long-term pain relief. Nerve blocks for chronic pain may work for 6 to 12 months. They may need to be repeated for maximum effect.

Diagnostic nerve blocks help determine sources of pain or further courses of action needed to achieve pain relief. The amount of immediate pain relief experienced helps to confirm or deny the joint as a source of pain.

This treatment involves the placement of a needle and probe near nerves to subject the nerves to heat or electrical current to decrease pain from those nerves. Read More

Radiofrequency treatment reduces pain by decreasing the pain signals the treated nerves transmit to the brain. Interruption of the pain signals allow the patient to experience relief from pain and discomfort in the treated area.

Radiofrequency treatment can be used to help patients with chronic lower back and neck pain or arthritis. Depending on the cause and location of pain, the degree of pain relief achieved with radiofrequency treatment varies. Pain relief can last from 6 to 12 months.
