Service: Pain Management

Optim’s interventional pain management team is dedicated to finding relief for pain so you can get back to the activities you love. Our team of specialists are equipped to provide exceptional care and minimally invasive treatments for individuals who are suffering neck, back or joint pain.

Our pain management team is comprised of doctors trained in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. They are specialists in evaluating and treating pain that stems from the musculoskeletal system. They offer a comprehensive approach to diagnosing and treating both chronic pain and acute pain and are able to design an individualized treatment program to reduce pain and restore your quality of life!

They diagnose and treat patients with sudden or acute injuries that cause pain, as well as patients who are suffering from chronic or long-lasting pain, which often stems from degenerative conditions such as arthritis in the back or neck. They are specialists in image-guided injections, electrostimulation and nerve blocks. While some injections may provide pain relief, others may be done to help diagnose the source of your pain. Either way, they effectively address nerve, muscle and disk pain with image-guided injections, which allows the doctor to place medication into a specific area in a very precise manner.

Some of the common pain relieving techniques used by these specialists include, injecting a steroid to reduce inflammation, targeting nerve pain by blocking the pain signals to the brain and delivering numbing agents to provide short-term and long-term pain management that can effectively restore the quality of life.
