The Center for Pain Management at Florida Hospital Fish Memorial presents pain management through an interdisciplinary and multimodal outpatient care environment. The pain management program focuses on whole-person health, blending the wellness of mind, body and spirit. We believe that true health is achieved not only by treating the illness, but by addressing lifestyle, habits and environmental factors that impact your health.
Your personalized pain management treatment plan begins with a complete diagnostic assessment. This valuable resource is used to create an appropriate wellness program that assists you in improving your quality of day-to-day activities and self-management skills.
Through a referral from your physician, a personalized care plan will be developed using the comprehensive diagnostic assessment. We begin this assessment by gathering as much data as possible about your pain, including a medical history and lifestyle analysis.
We work with you, your family and our staff to set specific goals and time frames for your care plan. Education at this point is important to help you understand aspects of your pain and treatment plan. Depending on your individual needs and goals, your program may include one or more of the following:
- State-of-the-art Diagnostic Evaluation
- Intervention Techniques in Pain Management
- Anesthetic Nerve Blocks and Epidural Steroid Injection
- Physical or Occupational Therapy
- Lifestyle Management, including Stress Reduction and Relaxation Techniques
- Pain Care Self-Management Training
- Health/Psychology Evaluation and Treatment
- Biofeedback (if needed)
- Laser Therapy for Herniated Disc
- Radio Frequency
- Lysis of Adhesions
At the conclusion of your treatment plan, education and instructions are provided to assist you in improving your day-to-day functions and increasing your independent self-management abilities.
