Our Unique Pain Management Approach
Minimally invasive pain relief techniques bridge the gap between using open surgery which may entail higher risks and longer recovery periods, and conservative physical therapies which may not be as immediately effective, to treat pain.
These techniques are in the form of specialised injections and small ports to either laser and burn away the pain problem and/or desensitise painful nerves to allow for regeneration of normal nerve function.
