Interventional Pain Management
Interventional Pain Management Clinic in Port Charlotte, FL
At Advanced Orthopedic Center in Port Charlotte, Florida, we look at each patient as a whole person, not just someone who has a painful area that needs treatment. That is the essence of interventional pain management, a discipline rooted in the goal of helping patients relieve their pain through the use of various cutting-edge treatment options, some of them traditional, and some holistic.
Rather than just focusing on medication to help you deal with your pain, our highly trained doctors rely on an extensive array of whole-body therapies to help eliminate your pain and enable you to reclaim your strength and freedom of movement. For example, in addition to receiving facet joint injections to relieve our joint pain, you may be required to undergo physical therapy or chiropractic care to fully address the root cause of your pain.
Here at Advanced Orthopedics Center, we believe it often takes a team approach for pain management to be successful. Our goal is to help you return to your normal activities as swiftly as possible. In addition to our board-certified orthopedic surgeons, our interventional pain management clinic has many types of practitioners available to help you tackle your pain. These include physician assistants, a nurse practitioner, physical therapists, and MRI technicians. We also provide access to chiropractors for spine issues, acupuncturists for alternative pain therapy and mental health therapists to treat any symptoms of depression or anxiety.

- DRG (Dorsal Root Ganglion) stimulation
