Pain Management Q & A
Why would I need pain management?
Pain management is a field of medicine that focuses on easing chronic pain that results from injuries, after surgery, or due to underlying health conditions and age-related degenerative conditions.
Some of the most common conditions that often need ongoing pain management include:
- Traumatic injuries
- Post-surgical complications
- Degenerative spine conditions
- Nerve compression and damage
The team at Florida Medical Pain Management recommends scheduling an evaluation if you have persistent pain lasting longer than 12 weeks that isn’t getting better with home care. You should also schedule a consultation if your pain is severe enough to limit your ability to work and/or stay mobile.
Through a customized treatment plan, your Florida Medical Pain Management provider can help you find the right solution to treat existing pain and prevent your condition from getting worse.
What pain management services are available?
To provide you with comprehensive pain relief, the team at Florida Medical Pain Management offers a variety of conservative and minimally invasive treatments.
Depending on your condition and how severe your pain and disability are, you could benefit from treatments like:
- Ketamine infusions

- Stellate ganglion block
- Radiofrequency ablation
- Trigger point injections
- Medial branch nerve blocks

Your physicians can explain the details of each of these treatments and tell which ones would best meet your needs. They can also provide medication management services to make sure you’re not taking drugs that can interact with each other, protecting your health and well-being.
What can I expect during a pain management consultation?
During your initial evaluation, your Florida Medical Pain Management physician reviews your personal and family health histories, your job, and your usual activities to identify issues that could be contributing to your pain.
Through a physical exam and imaging tests like X-rays, the team can determine the source of your pain and customize a treatment plan to your unique needs. The goal of treatment is to ease the pain you’re suffering now and prevent it from getting worse.
They also work with you on lifestyle changes, dietary improvements, and exercises you can do to stay pain-free.
