What should I expect during pain management consultations?

During pain management consultations at Alaska Pain to Wellness Center, you meet with a friendly provider. They check your vital signs, complete a physical exam, and review your medical history and symptoms. 

Your pain specialist could also order blood tests, nerve testing, heart-function tests, X-rays, an MRI, an ultrasound, a CT scan, or other imaging procedures to determine the best way to reduce your discomfort. 

What are common pain-relieving treatments?

Standard pain-relieving solutions available at Alaska Pain to Wellness Center include:

Physical therapy

Physical therapy stretches and strengthening exercises reduce pain naturally and lessen your risk of further injuries. 

Medical cannabis

Your Alaska Pain to Wellness Center provider helps you gain access to medical cannabis, if you qualify, to reduce ongoing pain. 

Radiofrequency ablation

Radiofrequency ablation uses radio waves and a fine needle to heat and destroy painful nerves.

Spinal cord stimulation

Your Alaska Pain to Wellness Center specialist surgically implants a spinal cord stimulator underneath your skin. It then sends electrical signals to your spinal cord to reduce pain signals. 

Ultrasound-guided nerve hydrodissection 

Alaska Pain to Wellness Centre offers ultrasound-guided nerve hydrodissection, an injection of a solution that separates painful nerves from surrounding tissues.

Electrical nerve stimulation

Electrical nerve stimulation uses electrical impulses to reduce nerve pain without needles or surgery.

Injections

Cortisone, epidural, hyaluronic acid, and other injections help reduce inflammation and discomfort in joints or other painful tissues. Nerve block injections ease discomfort caused by damaged or compressed nerves. 

Intrathecal pain pump implant

Alaska Pain to Wellness Center offers implantable intrathecal pain pumps that release pain-relieving medicine into your body over time. 

Regenerative medicine

The Alaska Pain to Wellness Center team uses platelet-rich plasma (PRP), exosomes, stem cells, and other regenerative injections to stimulate cell regeneration and your body’s natural ability to heal.
