HDH’s Pain Clinic helps patients with pain that has outlasted the normal healing period following an injury, or are living with pain related to conditions which have not improved with physical therapy or pain medication. The Pain Clinic provides treatment for patients who suffer from acute or chronic pain, and partners with your primary care provider to treat and manage pain.
The goal of treatment is to improve mobility, comfort and quality of life for our patients. In some cases, pain management is also an effective way to maintain patient comfort until surgery can be performed.
Medicare and other insurance plans often cover pain management services. Treatment can be preauthorized to ensure coverage.
Radiofrequency Therapy (RF Therapy). If you’ve suffered from chronic pain for any length of time, you know the debilitating effects it can have on your and your loved ones. RF therapy has been used for decades to help thousands of people live with reduced pain.
RF therapy is a proven, low-risk treatment option for chronic pain. Radiofrequency is a type of energy that is used during the procedure to heat the nerves that are causing the pain. The heating stops the nerve’s ability to send pain signals to the brain, and thereby reduces the sensation of pain.
Talk to your doctor about your specific condition, and together you can decide if RF therapy is right for you.
