When you’re in pain it impacts everything. We understand that and are determined to get you back to living and enjoying life.

PAIN MANAGEMENT

Chronic pain has an impact in multiple ways. In addition to unbearable suffering, patients experience a personal and financial impact. Medical expenses, loss of income and productivity, limited mobility, and even bouts of depression are all effects of pain.

Our specialists concentrate on the diagnosis and treatment of acute, sub-acute, and chronic muscle and orthopedic pain management. With Board Certification and Fellowship Training in anesthesiology and pain management, our staff provides state of the art treatment, minimizes the use of medications and provides same-day procedures, facilitating rapid recovery.

WHY IT IS DONE

Relief of chronic pain focuses on treating various symptoms and addresses specific hidden conditions. The Invictus procedure first requires diagnoses which can vary greatly depending on cause and severity of the condition, the patient’s fundamental health, and their medical history. Our approach incorporates a multidisciplinary program in the management and treatment of pain to assure the patients’ highest possible level of functionality and independence.

THE PAIN MANAGEMENT PROCESS

The Invictus Healthcare pain management process tailors solutions for each patient’s needs and is designed to relieve pain through non-invasive treatments. Requiring no incision into the body or removal of tissue, these procedures include but are not limited to:

ELECTRICAL STIMULATION

Back and S.I. joint pain can be relieved by stimulating the nerves. Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation has proven to be effective in pain management, and is safe and not painful for most patients. With the use of Stimwave, the electrical leads that cause stimulation can be implanted into the body and have a wireless battery. This is more convenient for the patient because the battery can be taken off at any time and does not have to be surgically implanted. 

INJECTIONS

Typically administered with the benefit of a local anesthetic to relieve discomfort, injections are one of the most effective treatments for pain. Targeted injections of steroids and anesthetics serve to decrease chronic pain while improving functional status and quality of life. These conservative, alternative, non-invasive treatments are essential to pain management.
