The pain management doctors at Tarpon Interventional Pain & Spine Care can control and manage acute and chronic pain conditions, primarily related to spinal disorders. Nerve blocks and radiofrequency ablation are used to diagnose and evaluate pain conditions while providing substantial pain relief. Steroid injections can reduce pain caused by inflammation. These procedures can benefit patients with degenerative disc disease, pinched nerves, migraines, neck pain, back pain, and radiating pain in the arms and legs.

Pain management procedures are performed by board certified physicians who specialize in physical medicine and rehabilitation (PMR). These are outpatient procedures that require minimal down time but deliver pain relief for several weeks or months, depending on the patient.
