Specific Procedures & Injections

At OCH Pain Management, we work to be accurate and precise in pain management and treatment. To assist with this, many of our procedures are assisted with the help of fluoroscopy. Fluoroscopy is an imaging tool that allows the physician to look into spinal or skeletal areas, identifying specific areas of pain and isolating that area for precision of treatment. This allows delivery of optimal care and targets the source of pain. Conscious sedation is an option for most patients, to allow procedures to be performed more comfortably.

Treatments offered include (but are not limited to):

  • Epidural Steroid Injections
  • Facet Joint Injections
  • Carpal Tunnel Injections
  • Radiofrequency and Chemical Nerve Ablation
  • Spinal Cord Stimulators
  • Intrathecal Pain Pumps
  • Occipital Nerve Blocks
  • Epidural Blood Patch
  • Major and Minor Joint Injections
  • Synvisc® Knee Joint Injection Therapy

What to Expect at your First Visit

On the day of your first appointment, please bring a detailed list of your medications, including those you take on an “as needed” basis, over the counter medications and preparations, herbals, homeopathic, etc.

Arrive 15 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment to complete the paperwork process with the receptionist and/or update your current information. Patients arriving more than 20 minutes after their appointment time will be rescheduled for a later date.

Our check-in process includes:

  • Making a copy of your insurance card(s) and a valid photo ID
  • Collecting insurance co-pay, if applicable
  • Verifying current address, phone number, insurance information and reviewing our clinic privacy and appointment policies

The nursing staff will obtain your weight and vital signs, document a detailed list of medications, collect information regarding sleep habits, alcohol and tobacco intake, extensive information about your pain and any new treatments you may have recently tried.

The physician will ask more questions, obtain details of your history, listen to your goals and perform a focused physical exam. He may order special imaging and other diagnostics necessary to provide an accurate diagnosis and ensure your safety when treatments are prescribed.
