In-Office Treatment & Medication Management

In-Office  Pain Treatment
When you come to our clinic for a new patient evaluation, our medical providers will ask you some general questions about your medical history and some more specific questions about the history of your pain situation.   With the information you provide, they will determine whether diagnostic testing is needed to pinpoint the cause of your pain.  They will then make recommendations for treatment, which could include physical therapy, interventional procedures, working with a psychologist who specializes in chronic pain, medications, or in-office treatments.

During routine office visits, your medical provider will assess your response to current treatments and recommend continued treatment and/or new types of treatment.  Various procedures are also performed in the office.  These include:

  • Trigger point injections
  • Botox injections for migraine headache
  • Sphenopalatine ganglion blocks
  • Tendon/ligament injections
  • Joint injections which do not require fluoroscopic (x-ray) guidance (those requiring fluoroscopy are generally performed at Utah Valley Imaging)
  • Occipital nerve blocks
  • Ilioinguinal nerve blocks
  • Ulnar/median nerve blocks
  • Intercostal nerve blocks
  • Other peripheral nerve blocks
  • Capsaicin patch application for postherpetic neuralgia (pain after shingles)

Medication Management
We typically do not treat pain with medications alone. When used in conjunction with other treatment approaches, medications may help lead to increased function and diminished pain. Our goal is to incorporate strategies to manage your pain and decrease or eliminate the need for medications.
