Interventional Pain Center
According to the National Institute of Health, an agency of the U.S. Department of Health, more than 50 million Americans experience chronic pain and 45% of the population will seek medical help for pain at some point in their lives. Mercy's Interventional Pain Center can help.
The Center is designed around an interdisciplinary approach to pain that allows patients to have their care coordinated, and medical needs addressed.
Mercy's Interventional Pain Center provides procedures for patients dealing with back, neck and spine pain, in addition to pain caused by cancer and other chronic conditions.
It features 18 exams rooms, two procedure rooms with state-of-the-art imaging equipment, and additional consultation space. Patients also have access to the Spine Evaluation Clinic, where a physician will determine the source of a patient's pain and prescribe an appropriate course of action.
Pain management may include an interventional pain procedure, a referral to a surgeon or a behavioral counselor, or medically managing the patient through an innovative wellness coaching program. The wellness coach will guide patients through an individualized course of action, such as physical therapy, nutritional services, stress management or massage therapy.
From interrupting sleep to limiting physical activity, pain disrupts lives in many ways. Often pain is a symptom of a chronic condition, and sometimes the pain itself is the condition. Are you in pain? Take an informational Pain Quiz today!
