Our doctors strive to treat each patient as an individual and each family like their own.

Pain can develop for many reasons, such as arthritis, an overuse injury, or a spinal problem, like a herniated disc. Doctors who specialize in pain management are highly skilled at determining the source of the pain. Once the cause has been determined, these specialists can then prescribe a nonsurgical treatment option that has the best chance of helping the patient resolve their pain issue. 

Our pain management specialists are highly skilled medical professionals whose main focus is your well-being. Having undergone extensive training in pain management, our doctors are experts at assessing and diagnosing problems as well as at developing comprehensive care plans that focus on wellness, prevention, and education. 

Additionally, our pain management doctors are committed to offering the latest and most advanced treatment options and specialize in a wide array of nonsurgical treatment options and minimally invasive procedures. This includes:

  • Blocks
  • Epidural steroid injections

Providing Pain Management Care

There are many reasons why a patient may be experiencing pain. Sometimes, the origin of the pain is due to a traumatic accident or caused by participating in sports. However, other times, the pain may have developed over time without a clear cause. 

To help determine the reason behind the pain, a pain management specialist will have the patient describe their problem as well as ask questions about the pain they are experiencing. Once they have a full understanding of the situation, a pain management doctor will use their in-depth knowledge of the available treatment options to recommend the best treatment solution. Sometimes, this recommendation will be a blend of medications and other treatment options, such as injections.

At OrthoAlabama Spine & Sports, our pain management doctors understand that acute or chronic pain can greatly impact a patient’s day-to-day life. That’s why they are committed to working with each patient to help them find relief through proven pain management treatments. Our doctors are highly skilled at successfully administering a wide array of nonsurgical treatments and will work with you to determine which one is right for you.
