Our goal in pain management is simple: to improve our patients’ quality of life and get them back to the activities they miss…without surgery. At The Ainsworth Institute, we pride ourselves on treating the whole patient, not just the symptoms or individual findings on an MRI. We believe in a multi-disciplinary approach to treating pain. That means working carefully with your primary care and/or referring physician (whether that be your surgeon, neurologist, oncologist, psychiatrist or psychologist) and sometimes enlisting the aid of a physical therapist to help get you more active again.
The DRG Stimulation Procedure is the most cutting edge procedure available for pain in the United States. The doctors at the Ainsworth Institute were amongst first in the entire country allowed to perform this procedure and are tasked with training the rest of the U.S. Indications include: CRPS, RSD, neuropathy, Post-herpetic neuralgia, groin pain, knee pain and many, many more.
Platelet Rich Plasma
PRP is a new treatment option for various orthopedic injuries and conditions which have traditionally required surgery or other extensive treatments. Now, using a patient’s own blood, specially prepared regenerative platelets can be concentrated and re-injected into the painful area.
Superion InterSpinous Spacer
The Superion InterSpinous Spacer (ISS) is a highly advanced, minimally-invasive option for treating symptomatic spinal stenosis. This procedure is reversible, takes minutes to perform and was found to be as effective as spinal surgery (i.e. decompressive laminectomy) making it an outstanding alternative.
IV Infusion Therapy
Treatments for chronic pain may focus on relieving symptoms or treating the underlying condition, and can vary depending on the cause and severity of each patient’s individual condition, as well as their overall health and medical history. The most successful pain management programs are those that are specifically tailored for each individual patient so that they can remain actively involved in their own recovery.
