When you’re in pain, it’s tough to think about anything else. Reclaim your life, with a comprehensive pain management treatment plan designed to reduce discomfort and improve and restore function. Here is a list of procedures Dr. Travnicek MD FIPP specializes in:
BOTOX / MYOBLOC
These injections are minimally invasive treatment option for patients suffering from dystonia, spasticity and myofascial pain.
This is an diagnostic injection technique used to evaluate patients with spine pain who have not responded to extensive conservative (nonsurgical) care regimens.
EPIDURAL STEROID INJECTIONS
An effective, low risk, minimally invasive treatment used to treat pain from disc herniations or bulges. Epidural steroid injections have been a mainstay of pain management for over 60 years because they work well; several types are available depending on your condition.
Sacroiliac, Hip, Knee, Shoulder
NEUROMODULATION - SPINAL CORD STIMULATORS (SCS) & DORSAL ROOT GANGLION STIMULATION
Spinal cord stimulation is one treatment for chronic pain. A small medical device sends signals to your spinal cord or to the dorsal root ganglion. These signals keep the chronic pain messages from being sent to your brain.
Nerve blocks, or neural blockades, are procedures that can help diagnosis, prevent or manage many different types of pain. They are often injections of medicines that block pain from specific nerves.
PERIPHERAL NERVE STIMULATION
Used to treat chronic nerve pain from any cause that failed surgery, to prevent surgery or when neural blockades do not last. A small medical device sends signals to your brain to reduce painful signal transmission.
QUTENZA PATCH IN OFFICE
QUTENZA® (capsaicin) 8% topical system is indicated in adults for the treatment of neuropathic pain associated with post herpetic neuralgia (PHN) and for neuropathic pain associated with diabetic peripheral neuropathy (DPN) of the feet.
RADIOFREQUENCY ABLATION (RFA)
Used to treat chronic pain caused by spinal injury, arthritis and/or failed surgeries in the spine, hip, knee and foot. The most common condition treated is degenerative arthritis of the facet joints in the neck or back. RFA uses thermal energy to destroy tiny sensory nerve endings.
