Procedures for Pain Management
When treatments such as physical therapy and massage are incapable of helping manage a patient’s pain effectively, an injection or procedure may be necessary to help provide an adequate level of pain relief. Often, these treatments are used in conjunction with other pain management modalities, like physical therapy and massage therapy, to provide maximum relief for the longest period of time.

Colorado Injury and Pain Specialists offers a wide variety of minimally invasive procedures designed to reduce pain and improve function in our patients. Some common treatments include:
