Interventional Pain Management:
Interventional pain management is a multidisciplinary approach for maximum results. This state-of-the-art approach to pain control minimizes the potential dependency or addiction to opioid pain medications by offering minimally invasive surgical procedures to reduce your pain to a tolerable level. The Center for Medical Excellence specializes in a variety of interventional pain management services, including, but not limited to epidurals, various nerve blocks, radiofrequency nerve ablation, trigger point injections, and spinal cord stimulators that are proven to reduce pain by targeting the source of pain. Other interventional chronic pain treatment and services include:

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP):
Platelet Rich Plasma is a relatively innovative form of treatment that can help repair your joints and tissues. Considered investigational by many insurance companies, it is a form of treatment that utilizes the growth factors from your own blood. After drawing your whole blood, it is centrifuged to isolate the growth factors. Then the growth factors from your blood are injected in your body areas that need to be repaired. Early research studies show promising results. These positive results are also seen in our treatment center.
Customized Rehabilitation Services:
One of our main goals is to maximize your functional abilities so that you can optimize your quality of life. Physical, occupational, and behavioral therapy as well as orthotics, prosthetics, and assistive devices will help you achieve these functional gains. A personalized diet and exercise program will help you build muscle, lose weight, and maintain a healthier life. Osteopathic manipulations can be used to correct any restricted spinal or joint motion. For many people, some medications can lead to unhealthy drug dependencies that can be as debilitating as the pain condition itself. The Center for Medical Excellence can help patients avoid the potential risks with drug addiction and dependency. We also utilize urine drug testing to ensure patient treatment compliance.
Comprehensive rehabilitation services may include:
- Physical, occupational, and cognitive behavioral therapy
- Personalized diet & exercise program
- Out-patient opioid detoxification
- Osteopathic manipulative treatments
- Urine drug testing
- Ice, heat, TENS, & electrical interferential stimulation
- Assistive mobility devices
Electromyography/ Nerve Conduction Studies:
At the Center for Medical Excellence, electromyography and nerve conduction studies are utilized to identify the neuropathic and/or myopathic causes of pain by identifying, measuring, and calculating the electrical activity in nerves and muscles. The Information gained during these studies helps to detect the existence, location, and extent of nerve and muscle disorders so that an appropriate treatment plan can be prescribed.
