St. Luke’s Health pain management programs include thorough evaluations and treatment plans to relieve, reduce, or manage pain to improve a patient’s quality of life. Our programs address acute and chronic pain, with a goal to have patients return to everyday activity as quickly as possible.
Treatment plans, which are individualized and comprehensive, begin with outpatient or inpatient evaluations using the latest technology. Pain management specialists prescribe one or more treatment options to achieve optimal pain relief. These methods, which may be combined with physical and occupational therapy, social services, drug detoxification, and behavior modification, include:
- Nerve blocks or stimulation
- Epidural or trigger point injections
- Techniques to arrest nerve impulses
