Interventional pain medicine includes a wide array of treatment options, rather than simply taking medications, to eliminate long-lasting pain. Dr. Shah and his team offer a personalized, multidisciplinary approach to treat:
You might experience long-lasting discomfort because of arthritis, another chronic disease, an automobile accident, a fall, or sports-related injuries.
To find out what’s causing musculoskeletal discomfort, Dr. Shah reviews your medical history and symptoms. He completes a comprehensive physical examination and might recommend X-rays, blood tests, MRIs, CT scans, other imaging procedures, or nerve tests to diagnose your condition and the root cause of discomfort.
Some of the many interventional pain medicine services available at SamWell Institute for Pain Management include:
Physical therapy is a holistic treatment for chronic pain. Dr. Shah shows you exercises and stretches that can offer long-lasting relief.
Massage therapy manipulates soft tissues to relieve nerve pressure, tight muscles, and pain naturally. It’s often a relaxing experience that can reduce stress and anxiety.
Anesthetic or steroid injections can diminish pain and inflammation, increasing your overall quality of life without surgery.
The SamWell Institute for Pain Management team offers platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and stem cell injections to stimulate your body’s natural ability to regenerate new cells, heal, and diminish pain.
Spinal cord stimulation, dorsal root ganglion stimulation, and peripheral nerve stimulation use a specialized device to deliver electrical impulses to targeted nerves and other tissues to block pain signals and relieve discomfort.
Dr. Shah might recommend a minor surgical procedure to implant a spacer in your spinal cord or complete minimally invasive spinal decompression to reduce nerve pressure and chronic discomfort.
