Interventional Pain Management
At Advanced Orthopedic Center in Port Charlotte and Punta Gorda, Florida, we look at each patient as a whole person, not just someone who is in pain and needs treatment. That is the essence of interventional spine pain management, a discipline rooted in the goal of helping patients relieve their pain using various cutting-edge treatment options, including both holistic and traditional treatments.
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.
Here at Advanced Orthopedic Center, we believe it often takes a team approach for spine 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 spine 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. Each of these specialists can be found on our main campus through our on-site facilities. With our on-site facilities, patients can get a 360-degree diagnostic treatment, complete with X-rays and MRIs. 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.

When to Seek Interventional Pain Management
Persistent spine pain can manifest in multiple ways – it can appear as a strain in the neck, or as radiating pain in the lower back. At Advanced Orthopedic Center, we often encourage patients to consider interventional pain management treatments in the event their intense pain persists for more than 7 days. After this point, our team of physicians and orthopedic experts are happy to step in, sit down with you, listen to your concerns, and evaluate your condition.
Each of our patient’s treatments are completely personalized, as the spine is a complex structure within the body. Our tailored treatment plans allow our patients to get the treatment they need both quickly and conveniently, helping them to get back to enjoying the activities they love most.
Rest assured, at Advanced Orthopedic Center, our entire pain management team will work closely with you and your doctor to determine what options work best for you. This will depend on the type of pain you’re experiencing, its severity, the risk factors involved, and any other barriers to treatment.
