Pain Management

Make Appointments & Get Care


Treating pain takes a team of physicians with a wide range of specialties and expertise. Our experts in Anesthesiology, Neurosurgery, and Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation are leaders in treating pain. UR Medicine offers a multidisciplinary approach to pain treatment, so you will have a complete team of pain experts working for you.

UR Medicine's Approach

UR Medicine offers every pain treatment you might benefit from. This enables us to completely customize your care from your very first day.

Procedural Therapy

  • Epidural injections
  • Facet injections
  • Intraarticular injections
  • Sympathetic blocks, including stellate ganglion, celiac plexus, thoracic and lumbar sympathetic ganglion, superior hypogastric plexus and ganglion impar blocks
  • Home epidural infusions
  • Spinal cord stimulator trial and implantations
  • Radiofrequency ablations
  • Neurolytic procedures
  • Trials of intrathecal medications
  • MILD Procedure - Minimally Invasive Lumbar Decompression


Patients will have regular medical follow-ups to adjust and titrate various pain medications (opioid analgesics, antidepressants, anticonvulsants and other adjuvants).

Once patients are stabilized on an adequate pain regime they are discharged back to their primary care provider to continue with ongoing care. 

Psychological Services

Behavioral and cognitive therapies with our clinical psychologists include bio-feedback, hypnosis, and relaxation therapy. This is an integral part of pain management because chronic pain is a disabling disease and affects the person as a whole. These services are very important and very effective in improving the quality of life for patients.

Patient Stories

Connie Got her Active Life Back

Connie's low back/tailbone pain was diagnosed as a disease called coccydynia, an inflammation of the last segment of the tailbone. Connie was injected with steroids, and weeks later her pain was significantly reduced and she was able to enjoy an active life with her grandchildren again.
