Pain Management at St. Joseph Health Medical Group

St. Joseph Health Medical Group’s pain management doctors are dedicated to helping you live with less pain so you can find the peace you’ve been searching for — mind, body and spirit.

Unlike some pain management programs that rely only on medications to relieve pain, we explore non- and minimally invasive care options such as personalized physical therapy, epidural injections, and nerve blocks to find the treatment that works best for you and your lifestyle.

Using only cutting edge, proven treatments for pain management, St. Joseph Health Medical Group creates customized treatment options for patients in pain that incorporate pain procedures, nutrition, exercises, and medications. Our personalized approach to pain management and rehabilitation puts you at the center of every decision we make.

Procedures Performed

Vertebroplasty

Acrylic bone cement is injected through a small needle to stabilize or “cast” compression fractures of the spine, eliminating the source of pain.
