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.
