Pain Management

Here at Healthpointe, we utilize the latest medical procedures and techniques to aid in the diagnosis, treatment, and management of acute and chronic pain.

Our Pain Management Program is grounded in teamwork, and as a team, we are focused on identifying the cause and ameliorating the patient’s physical sense of pain in order to treat it efficiently and economically. Our program has been designed to identify direct sources of pain, manage it, and facilitate the patient’s return to normal activity. Through creating personalized treatment plans, we work to decrease patients’ dependence on addictive pain medication, reduce the need for repetitive office visits, and achieve overall pain relief.

When John suffered from a traumatic brain injury, Healthpointe was there to help, and “created a pain-management plan that resurrected [him] over the two hardest years of [his] life.” To listen to more about John’s story, check out his testimonial video below.


Our program is intended for moderate-to-severe and complex cases. Specifically, cases in which all conservative or conventional care methods have been exhausted and have failed to provide patients with adequate improvement. Treatments that are more aggressive may be considered through minimally invasive approaches.

Furthermore, adjunctive services, such as physical therapy, physiotherapy, chiropractic care, biofeedback, and acupuncture, are all a part of Healthpointe’s comprehensive program, and may be incorporated into a patient’s custom treatment plan. In many cases, our team has found that altering a conservation treatment program with selective spinal blocks, facet injections, or medication changes can help to decrease a patient’s dependency on narcotic medication. This minimizes side effects, potential for addiction and allows for greater functional activity and improvement.

Here are some of the advanced techniques that Healthpointe’s medical professionals may employ in creating a customized pain management plan:

  • Discogram / Discography
  • Electrical Stimulation
  • Epidural Steroid Injections
  • Facet Joint Injections
  • Implantable Pump Devices
  • Intradiscal Injections
  • Intraspinal Drug Delivery
  • Intrathecal Infusion
  • Pain Medications
  • Peripheral Nerve Blocks
  • Radio Frequency Lesioning
  • Rhizotomy
  • Spinal Cord Stimulators
  • Spinal Endoscopy
  • Stellate Ganglion Blocks
  • Trigger Point Injections


Degrees and Education

In order to become a certified pain management practitioner, one must start by first completing four years of pre-med education, along with four years of medical school, which results in a Medical Degree or Doctor of Osteopathy Degree. The doctors then complete a residency frequently in anesthesiology, neurology, or physical medicine and rehabilitation, and frequently have additional certification specifically in pain management.
