Precision Pain Care’s specialized pain management therapies include:
Epidural Steroid InjectionsEpidural Steroid Injection are used to manage nerve root irritation and caused by spinal disorders. Common conditions treated are: back pain and neck pain from herniated or bulging discs, disc degeneration, spinal stenosis, arthritis, trauma, post herpetic neuralgia and diabetic neuropathy.

Facet InjectionsFacet Injections and Medial Branch Blocks address inflamed facet joints due to trauma or arthritis. These injections can reduce chronic pain and also be used as a diagnostic tool.

Radiofrequency AblationRadiofrequency Ablation helps patients who have experienced short-term relief following facet injections, medial branch nerve blocks, or other painful nerve pathways. This procedure uses small electrodes to heat and destroy or stun and reset pain pathways and can provide long lasting pain relief.

Trigger Point InjectionsTrigger Point Injections treat painful soft tissue (muscle) points by injecting small amounts of local anesthetic and/or anti-inflammatory medications into specific muscles/muscle groups.
Joint InjectionsJoint Injections treat inflammatory joint conditions, such as rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, gout, tendonitis, bursitis and osteoarthritis.
Spinal Cord StimulationSpinal Cord Stimulation interrupts pain signals to the brain by delivering small, electrical impulses to nerve fibers in the spinal cord. This therapy can treat failed back syndrome, non-operative spine related pain, complex regional pain syndrome, peripheral and diabetic neuropathy, multiple sclerosis, back pain, post-amputation pain and post-herpetic neuralgia. Dr. Linehan is an expert in Spinal Cord Stimulation and has succesfully treated many pain care patients with this technology.
