Pain management services
The field of pain management treats all pain as a disease — regardless of its source. This includes both primary forms of pain such as headaches, as well as secondary pain, such as pain caused by a chronic disorder. Proper pain management is important for ongoing pain control, especially if patients suffer with long-term or chronic pain.
Depending on the severity of the pain you are experiencing, there may be several treatment approaches available for your specific management needs.
Options for treating pain may include:
- Interventional pain management
- Physical therapy
- Behavior modification
Procedures commonly performed by our pain management specialists include:
- Minimally invasive treatment for spinal stenosis
- Cervical nerve root block
- Epidural steroid injection
- Facet block
- Hardware block
- Intra-articular joint injection
- Sacro-iliac joint injections
- Piriformis injections

No referral necessary
Consultation with your primary care physician is recommended for any new or persistent pain-related concerns. However, if pain doesn’t resolve after several weeks, and if traditional treatments fail to provide relief, a visit to a pain specialist may help. Call Summit Pain Clinic at (307) 232-3235 to see if you may benefit from a consultation with a pain specialist.
Pain specialists should be considered as the step between a primary care provider and a surgeon to determine whether non-surgical interventions will work for you.
Referrals from physicians are also welcomed.
