PAIN MEDICINE & INTERVENTIONAL PAIN

The NeuroMedical Center’s Pain Management team aims to improve our patients’ quality of life by providing minimally-invasive and maximally effective treatments for chronic back and neck pain conditions.  Many times back or neck surgery can be avoided using an interventional approach.  Our treatment goal is to minimize our patients’ dependence on opioids by exploring all non-surgical options to get you back on track, pain-free!

Non-Surgical Treatment Options

Treatment for pain varies, depending on the cause. Some treatments are designed to reduce pain, and some are designed to help patients manage pain. More common methods used by our pain interventionalists to relieve pain include:

Epidural Steroid Injections (ESI)

Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA)

Nerve Blocks

Spinal Cord Stimulation Trials

Joint Injections

Trigger Point Injections

Medial Branch Blocks

botox-for-chronic-migraine

Botox Injections

Five-star quality of care

The NeuroMedical Center’s Pain Management team has access to a 5-star hospital dedicated to spine-related pain management.  The full range of pain management procedures are performed in one of The Spine Hospital of Louisiana’s five pain procedure suites located on the first floor of The NeuroMedical Center.  More than 7,000 procedures are performed at The Spine Hospital every year by The NeuroMedical Center’s Pain Management team who utilize the safest and most effective manners available including fluoroscopic (x-ray) guidance for excellent patient outcomes.

PHYSICAL MEDICINE & REHABILITATION (PM&R)

Physicians who specialize in physical medicine & rehabilitation (PM&R) are called “physiatrists.” Physiatrists at The NeuroMedical Center offer extensive training and experience in helping patients with complex neurological disease and injuries optimize recovery.   Our experts work closely with an interdisciplinary team of neurological specialists and therapists to provide patients the most advanced, effective neurorehabilitation programs currently available in Louisiana.

Consider seeing a PM&R specialist if:

  • You’ve been in an accident that has left you with pain or limited function
  • You’ve suffered a stroke or nerve damage
  • You’re dealing with chronic pain from a back or neck issue
  • You’re recovering from major surgery

EXPERT NEURO-REHABILITATION

The NeuroMedical Center’s Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation Specialists offer 24-hour care for patients in need of neurorehabilitation in The NeuroMedical Center’s Rehabilitation Hospital located on the 6th floor of The NeuroMedical Center.  The 27-bed facility is designed to help patients with various neurological diagnoses improve function and achieve the highest level of independence.

NEW NEUROMEDICAL CENTER’S CHRONIC PAIN & OPIOID MEDICATION POLICY

It is The NeuroMedical Center’s goal to safely reduce opioid usage while insuring our patients continue to improve and experience better quality of life. Many of our patients live with chronic, neurological disorders. Others suffered physical trauma and are on a long road to recovery. Our physicians recognize the delicate nature of opioid therapies and take pride in the appropriate usage and prescription of such medications. Although our physicians do incorporate opioid therapy in the treatment of some conditions and patients, opioids are never considered first-line therapy for chronic pain here at The NeuroMedical Center.
