Welcome to Premier Orthopaedics, your trusted partner in comprehensive orthopaedic care. Pain management is a cornerstone of our practice. In this article, we’ll explore various strategies, treatments, and frequently asked questions to help you achieve relief and improve your quality of life. With our team of highly skilled physicians and advanced therapies, we’re dedicated to addressing your pain and restoring your mobility and function.


Pain management is a multidisciplinary approach to alleviate pain and improve the quality of life for individuals suffering from acute or chronic pain. At Premier Orthopaedics, we recognize that pain is complex and can have physical, emotional, and psychological components. Our goal is to provide personalized conservative care that addresses the underlying cause of your pain while considering your unique needs and preferences.


Comprehensive Evaluation

Our team begins with a thorough assessment to identify the underlying cause of your pain. This may include physical examinations, diagnostic tests, and a review of your medical history.

Multimodal Treatment Approach

We believe in using a combination of therapies to address pain from multiple angles. This may include medication management, physical therapy, interventional procedures, and complementary therapies such as acupuncture or chiropractic care.

Patient Education

Understanding your condition and treatment options is empowering. We take the time to educate you about your diagnosis, treatment plan, and self-care strategies to manage your pain effectively.

Lifestyle Modifications

Making healthy lifestyle choices can play a significant role in pain management. This may include maintaining a healthy weight, staying active, practicing stress management techniques, and adopting ergonomic principles in daily activities.

Supportive Care

Pain can take a toll on your emotional well-being. Our team provides compassionate support and counseling to address any emotional or psychological factors contributing to your pain.


Medication Management

Depending on the type and severity of your pain, we may prescribe medications such as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), muscle relaxants, and neuropathic agents. We carefully monitor your response and adjust your treatment plan as needed to minimize side effects and maximize effectiveness.

Interventional Procedures

For localized pain or nerve-related conditions, we offer a range of minimally invasive procedures such as epidural steroid injections, nerve blocks, radiofrequency ablation, and spinal cord stimulation (SCS) to target specific pain generators and provide targeted relief.

Surgical Intervention

In cases where conservative treatments have been unsuccessful, our board-certified surgeons may recommend surgical intervention to address underlying structural issues and restore function, such as joint replacement or spinal fusion procedures.

Chronic Pain Syndromes

Chronic pain syndromes encompass a range of conditions characterized by persistent pain lasting for weeks, months, or years. Our specialists offer personalized treatment plans, including medication management, interventional procedures, and behavioral therapy, to help patients manage their symptoms and improve quality of life.

Nerve Blocks

Nerve blocks are injections of local anesthetics or steroids near nerves to block pain signals. Our team provides targeted nerve blocks for conditions such as sciatica, chronic headaches, and neuropathy, to provide immediate pain relief and promote healing.

Epidural Steroid Injections

Epidural steroid injections involve injecting corticosteroids into the epidural space of the spine to reduce inflammation and alleviate pain. Our specialists offer epidural injections for conditions such as back or neck pain, spinal stenosis, and herniated discs, to provide long-lasting relief and improve function.

Radiofrequency Ablation

Radiofrequency ablation is a procedure that uses heat generated by radio waves to target and disrupt nerves causing pain. Our team offers radiofrequency ablation for conditions such as facet joint pain, spinal arthritis, and chronic neck or back pain, to provide long-lasting pain relief and improve mobility.

Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation

Physical therapy and rehabilitation involve exercise programs and therapeutic techniques designed to improve strength, flexibility, and function. Our specialists work closely with physical therapists to develop personalized treatment plans for patients with chronic pain conditions, to help them regain function and improve quality of life.
