Pain Management

Pain Management at Meridian HealthMeridian Health offers a variety of minimally invasive approaches to help patients with chronic or acute pain. Our pain management program offers a wide variety of treatment options including conservative drug therapies, epidural anesthesia and minimally invasive nerve stimulation techniques performed in our radiology and vascular labs.

These are used to treat:

  • Chronic knee pain caused by nerve entrapment: Treated with a common peroneal nerve block with nerve stimulation and ultrasound guidance
  • Migraine headaches: Treated with an injection in the base of the skull to numb the nerves
  • Cervical neck pain caused by arthritis of the cervical spine: Treated with a nerve block injection
  • Shooting arm pain caused by a pinched nerve: Treated with a cervical epidural
  • Chronic arm and neck pain: Treated with cervical spinal cord stimulation
  • Lower back pain: Treatment involves injection of local anesthetics, steroids, or narcotics into affected soft tissues, joints, or nerve roots to more complex nerve blocks and spinal cord stimulation.
