Offering chronic pain relief and symptom management

Houston Methodist Pain Management Center cares for difficult pain cases. The center provides effective symptom management, functional rehabilitation and improved quality of life for patients suffering from back pain, complex regional pain, fibromyalgia, myofascial pain, trigeminal neuralgia, neuropathic pain and pain associated with multiple sclerosis or stroke. Also treated are those with neck pain, cervical disc disease, chronic fatigue syndrome and intractable headaches. Treatment includes a variety of medications, with each patient treated based on unique needs. Some patients also find relief from infusion therapies, Botox injections, nerve blocks, among other modalities. In addition, the center has expertise in implantable spinal and peripheral stimulators to manage chronic pain, as well as implantable drug delivery devices such as the intrathecal baclofen pumps to manage both pain and spasticity.
