Our Treatment Options

Fluoroscopy-Guided Procedures

Fluoroscopy-guided procedures use x-rays that allow the doctor to see real-time images of the patient when performing procedures.

Radiofrequency Neurolysis (Rhizolysis)

Radiofrequency (RF) Neurolysis utilizes heat to destroy selected nerve fibers to effectively block pain signals to the brain, which can reduce or eliminate various types of pain, particularly neck and back pain.

Nerve Blocks

A nerve block is the injection of a local anesthetic into the tissues surrounding a nerve. It relieves pain by interrupting the pain signals that would otherwise be sent to your brain.

At the Centre for Pain Care (CPC), we understand that each patient’s pain is unique, and we develop personalized pain management care plans using a comprehensive, multi-disciplinary approach. No matter what type of chronic pain you suffer from, we provide support and treatment options that can have a pain-reducing effect.

Most cases of chronic pain cannot be completely and permanently cured. A small percentage can be cured. However, through a combination of medication, psychological support, and treatment options to control pain, patients can improve their quality of life.

Here at the CPC we utilize the most up-to-date procedures to diagnose and treat chronic pain. Procedures are often performed with:

  • Fluoroscopy. Fluoroscopy-guided procedures use x-rays that allow the doctor to see real-time images of the patient when performing procedures. Read more…
  • Ultrasound. Using Diagnostic Ultrasound to guide chronic pain treatment procedures can reduce complications and result in higher success rates.

We specialize in treatments to control pain and improve quality of life including:

Nerve Blocks

Palliation

Palliation is described as making a disease or its symptoms less severe or unpleasant without removing the cause. Palliation is usually performed by administering pain medication. If the chronic pain is beyond our capability to diagnose or treat we may give the patient a referral to another specialist for treatment or surgery.

Radiofrequency Neurolysis (Rhizolysis)

Lidocaine Infusions

Lidocaine infusions are used to treat fibromyalgia and neuropathic pain disorders. Infusions are performed intravenously to calm nerves and provide relief from chronic pain. Read more…

Pain Medication Therapy

Pain medication may be prescribed when treatment or surgery is not an option or when treatment or surgery provides insufficient relief of chronic pain. The types of medications prescribed may include anti-inflammatory medications, antidepressants, and anticonvulsants. When necessary, analgesics (narcotics) may be prescribed under strict monitoring and control. Read more…
