Diagnostic and Therapeutic Procedures

Understanding Chronic Pain is the First Step to Managing and Curing It …

We offer a comprehensive set of specialized services and therapies to treat many conditions related to chronic pain – conditions like:

  • Neuropathy and peripheral nerve damage from diabetes
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD)
  • Neck pain and back pain, including work-related injuries
  • Persistent pain after neck or back surgery

Among the advanced diagnostic and therapeutic services provided are:

Advanced Neuromodulation – Using electrical impulses at certain points in the neck and spine, neuromodulation alters nerve activity to treat pain very effectively. (These include DRG, HF10, DCS and sacral therapies.)

High-frequency modulation – We’re the only program on Maryland’s Eastern Shore offering this form of therapy. With high-frequency modulation, patients cannot detect the stimulation, and this form of therapy can relieve pain for many individuals when lower frequency therapy has proven ineffective.

Nerve blocks – Including epidurals as well as ultrasound-guided peripheral nerve blocks.

Intradiscal electrothermal annuloplasty (IDET) – Using heat to treat pain.

Inter-articular injections and injections at pain points.

Implants – Key implant services provided by Atlantic General Pain Center include:

  • Spinal cord stimulators
  • Pain pumps for intra-spinal drug delivery

Appointments can be made by referral. The center can be reached by calling 410-641-3340 or faxing 410-641-3341.
