Treatment Services

Interventional Therapy

The overall goal of these procedures is to improve the quality of life and function of our patients with radicular symptoms or other types of nerve injury. Diagnostic blocks determine the painful area, therapeutic blocks reduce inflammation and pain, and ablation procedures provide long-lasting pain relief. We also offer neuromodulation therapies and implantable pain pumps for patients that have failed conservative treatment. These therapies often allow patients to resume their normal everyday activities as well as reduce their reliance on medications.

Medication Management

Due to the new Washington State Laws governing medications, opioid prescriptions are closely monitored. Before prescribing medications, patients sign a narcotic agreement to have all opioid medications prescribed through our office. We understand the need for medications and work with patients to generate an effective therapy plan to manage their pain.

Behavioral Therapy Services

The mind is a powerful tool. With a limited number of sessions with our psychologist, patients learn how to view chronic pain clearly and develop effective ways to maintain an active lifestyle. Unhealthy behaviors (such as smoking, alcohol use, poor diet, lack of exercise,poor sleep hygiene etc) are major contributory factors to chronic pain and will be discussed at your appointment. The majority of patients who benefit from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and other forms of psychological approaches to chronic pain do not have a mental health condition.

Alternative Therapies

Alternative therapies have been used for hundreds of years before the evolution of modern medicine. These therapies still have practicality in today’s approach to treating the whole body by developing strength, increasing flexibility, decreasing muscle spasms, and demonstrating proper body mechanics. As a result, your provider may suggest chiropractics, acupuncture, massage therapy, or coordination of physical therapy.
