Interventional Pain Management is a cutting edge and effective alternative to patients who are dealing with pain. While narcotics can be highly addictive and not address or resolve the root of the problem, interventional pain management treatments like injections and minimally invasive procedures are an option for patients at Florida Physical Medicine.

Dr. Lora Brown is Board Certified in Interventional Pain Management and can build an individualized treatment plan that targets your pain. Contact us today to set up an appointment and begin treatment.

Interventional Pain Management for Auto Accident Injuries

Medications don’t always fix the root cause of your pain, and they do not effectively target nerves causing the pain. Medications can also lead to nausea, grogginess, and even worse, addiction. After an auto accident, interventional pain management is the option for long term relief.

Symptoms Treated with Interventional Pain Management

After an auto accident, you are often left in pain. If you are feeling any of the following, consider interventional pain management:

  • Neck pain
  • Back pain
  • Radicular (radiating) pain
  • Pain with movement
  • Pain when sitting or standing
  • Failed conservative care (other therapy is no longer helping)

You don’t have to live with pain after an auto accident. Our doctors can provide treatments to improve your injuries and get you back to your everyday, pain free routine.

Interventional Pain Management Treatments

Treatment begins with an appointment with our board certified doctor. Dr. Brown will evaluate you and discuss how your injury occurred (Were you looking up into the rearview mirror and then struck from the right? Were you looking left before turning right, and then hit from the rear?). Examining the mechanism of injury in detail will help efficiently diagnose and treat the injury from the source. From there, she can determine the best possible route of treatment.

Treatment includes:

  • ESIs (epidural steroid injections) facet-blocks
  • Diagnostic injections (to determine the specific level of pain)
  • RFA (radiofrequency ablation)
  • Disc Decompressions
  • Endoscopic discectomy

Interventional procedures can be a great alternative to surgery for the right candidates. You’ll experience a quick recovery time and outpatient treatment, and in most cases you’ll enjoy many years of relief.

Florida Physical Medicine has a Class-2 procedure suite in house. When you come for your procedure, you can feel comfortable coming to a familiar location. There’s no need to go to a surgery center or hospital, we can provide care and even anesthesia right on premises.

If you are experiencing pain after an auto accident, contact Florida Physical Medicine for a customized treatment plan.
