There is no doubt that an enormous number of people suffer every day from chronic, acute or breakthrough pain. We are here to help you! Pain Care Specialists of Florida - a pain management clinic in Aventura - provides a comprehensive range of services for patients with chronic or acute pain while offering the most advanced treatment options in a supportive, sympathetic environment.
Pain management is the medical speciality that is focused on treating all types of pain, including musculoskeletal, spinal, and neuropathic pain disorders. Depending on the cause of the pain, pain management might be simple or complex. An example of less complex pain would be nerve root irritation from a herniated disc with the pain radiating down the leg. This condition is often alleviated with an epidural steroid injection, but it may happen that the pain does not go away. If so, it will require a wider variety of skills and techniques to treat the pain.
With an accurate diagnosis and early intervention, we can help patients avoid developing chronic pain, or reduce the severity of pain, and significantly improve their quality of life.
Our pain management clinic in Aventura offers patients more options than a primary care doctor when it comes to comprehensive and interventional pain management. A pain management specialist is “a physician with special training in evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment of all different types of pain” (ASRA’s definition). The doctor has deep knowledge of the psychology of pain and how to diagnose pain properly using specialized tests. He or she evaluates patients with complicated pain problems, prescribes appropriate medications, and has the skills to perform procedures (such as nerve blocks, spinal injections and other interventional techniques). Our specialists in pain management are focused on the total person, not just the pain!
All procedures at our pain management clinic in Aventura are performed under direct fluoroscopy or with sonography guidance.
