Interventional Pain Management

Multidisciplinary Approach to Pain is Most Effective

We offer state-of-the-art, multidisciplinary treatment designed to improve the lives of those living with pain. Since pain affects every aspect of the patient, the preferred and most beneficial treatment is the multidisciplinary approach. This means providing treatment for the entire physical, mental and emotional being. We prefer to treat our patients with physical therapy and rehabilitation, cutting-edge injections therapies, and other minimally invasive procedures to treat spine and joint disorders. We also advocate lifestyle modification, stress management, nutritional support and exercise as essential supplements to care. We do everything possible to avoid surgery and recommend it only when absolutely necessary.

Our approaches are:

  • Comprehensive Pain Evaluation
  • Physical Therapy
  • Interventional Techniques
  • Psychological Therapies

Advanced Interventional Procedures for Spine and Joint Care

If you’ve never experienced back or neck pain, consider yourself lucky. 80% of Americans will suffer a bout of back pain in their lifetime. It’s the most common cause of job-related disability in America and costs about $50 billion a year in treatments.

Many people find relief from pain through interventional procedures. Epidural or Facet Joint Injections can be extremely effective in relieving chronic pain, sometimes permanently. Several newer procedures and various types of nerve blocks may be used to avoid or delay the need for surgery.

Coping with Chronic Pain

Living with chronic pain affects every single aspect of your life, and often impacts your loved ones as well. While chronic pain isn’t “just in your head”, your state of mind has a major influence on how well you cope. The psychological side effects of living with chronic pain can be as debilitating as the pain itself.

Dr. Martin has a multi-faceted approach focusing on each individual’s psychological, emotional and lifestyle needs when selecting a course of treatment. Patients receive a customized plan designed specifically for them by an honest and compassionate physician truly dedicated to their care.
