Treatment philosophy Research has shown that effective pain management requires a comprehensive approach that incorporates the most advanced medical, psychological, and lifestyle technologies to eliminate or reduce chronic pain. Our treatment philosophy remains open to new developments in the area of pain management. Our goal is to offer each patient a "package" of beneficial components. However, we recommend only treatments that have been shown to be effective in sound scientific research. We continue to expand our range of treatment services. Interdisciplinary planning Saint Anne's Center for Pain Management adheres to a strong coordinated interdisciplinary approach. Our treatment staff includes several different areas of expertise. Weekly clinical conferences allow us to develop interdisciplinary treatment plans and objectives for each new patient. Treatment outcomes are also reviewed at weekly conferences. Treatment for the most common pain problems may include: * Physical conditioning and rehabilitative programs to improve or restore functional capacity * Behavioral medicine components including relaxation training, stress management, and pain reduction training * Psychological interventions to address components of depression and anxiety and to foster pain-coping responses * Medication management * Peripheral and sympathetic nerve blocks * Epidural steroids injections * Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation * Diagnostic facet joint injection * Vertebroplasty * Spinal implantation techniques for electrical stimulation or medical administration * Integration of supplementary components
