Relief to Help Get You Moving and Back to Enjoying Life

Pain Management Spine Services at Lane Regional Chronic and severe pain affects physical and psychological health and enjoyment of daily living activities for 1 in 10 American adults. If that one is you or someone you know, the interventional pain management specialists at Lane can help by providing the latest in non-invasive and advanced treatment options.

Damage to nerve, cartilage, bone, muscle, or skin tissue may be related to injury, aging, or disease including post-operative pains or conditions such as osteoarthritis, cancer, multiple sclerosis, fibromyalgia, or shingles. Severe pain anywhere in the body, from the head, face, neck and spine, to joints, hands, legs, and feet, can be debilitating. People with chronic pain may experience inhibited mobility or extreme sensitivity to touch, which can lead to anxiety or depression.

Whether pain is neurological or musculoskeletal, or a combination, Lane’s pain specialists deliver compassionate, best-practice care, starting with the least invasive options to control pain. Our goal is to help patients retain as much movement and function as possible from pre-op to post-op, and in ambulatory or home settings.

Offering Advanced Treatment Options

Epidural Block at Lane Regional Epidural Block or Cervical Epidural Injections

Many people find relief from back or neck pain caused by conditions such as spinal stenosis or herniated discs with injections of corticosteroid or other pain blocking medications in the lower or cervical spine. The use of site-targeted injections is often combined with a comprehensive rehabilitation program as a non-surgical approach to providing pain relief before surgical options are considered.

Neuromodulation Implant for Spinal Cord Stimulation (SCS)

Advances in SCS technologies have significantly improved treatment and new technologies continue to be developed. After a minimally invasive procedure to implant wires and a programmable device, electrical stimulation can be adjusted to overcome pain signals and provide optimum relief. SCS may be an option for some patients with neuropathies including failed back syndrome, reflex sympathetic dystrophy, complex regional pain syndrome, central pain syndrome, peripheral vascular disease, refractory angina, or irritable bowel syndrome.

Proclaim Elite Spinal Cord Stimulation System (SCS)

The Proclaim Elite Spinal Cord Stimulation System is an FDA-approved, implantable device which uses electrical stimulation to help chronic pain sufferers.  The system uses small wires, known as leads, to deliver low levels of electrical energy, interrupting pain signals from the nerves before they can be sent to the brain.  Technology makes controlling and programming the device simple.  Physicians can adjust and program patient treatment as needed through an iPad, while patients have control through an iPod Touch, Bluetooth-enabled controller.  Studies have shown the system capable of reducing pain by 50 percent or more in many patients and greatly reducing or eliminating the need for pain medications.

Intrathecal PumpsIntrathecal Pump at Lane Regional

Implantation of an intrathecal pump device allows the direct delivery of pain medication to the brain and spine. The treatment has shown to provide dramatic pain relief for some patients including people with severe pain due to conditions such as multiple sclerosis, cancer, or stroke. Because medication is delivered internally, pain relief may be obtained with lower doses and reduce some side effects associated with oral medications.

Radiofrequency Ablation

Following more conservative treatments, radio frequency ablation is an option aimed at providing long-term relief. The procedure uses radio waves to heat a small, targeted area of nerve tissue to decrease pain signals. It is commonly used to help reduce pain in conditions affecting the back and spine, knee, hip, and sacroiliac joints, plantar fasciitis of the feet, and facial nerves involving biting and chewing functions.

COOLIEF

COOLIEF is a cooled radiofrequency treatment used for chronic back pain that has lasted longer than three months.  In order to avoid excessive heating that can occur with typical radiofrequency treatments, COOLIEF technology circulates water through the device while also heating nervous tissue.  This also allows for a larger treatment area of targeted sensory nerves to help reduce and relieve pain.  The procedure is outpatient and minimally invasive and has been shown to provide pain relief for patients for up to 24 months. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Kyphoplasty at Lane Regional Kyphoplasty

Kyphoplasty is a minimally invasive procedure to treat painful vertebral compression fractures, which may have been caused by injury to the spine or thinning of bone due to osteoporosis. During the procedure, the surgeon uses advanced x-ray guided technologies to insert balloons in the spine and restore the position of the vertebrae. Bone cement is then injected into the space to prevent re-collapse.
