Crystal Clinic Orthopaedic Center Launches Comprehensive Pain Management Service Line
Crystal Clinic Orthopaedic Center is proud to open a new pain management service line dedicated to this important, specialized service. The field of pain management has grown rapidly in recent years and Crystal Clinic Pain Management will provide a professional alternative to managing pain. Treatments include physical therapy, medication management and minimally invasive interventional procedures to reduce inflammation or decrease pain signals from nerve tissue, such as epidural steroid injections, selective nerve root blocks and radiofrequency ablation.
Pain management services are provided by Joshua Goldner, M.D., a board-certified and fellowship-trained pain medicine specialist and anesthesiologist, and Deborah Corbin, M.S., PA-C, a board-certified physician assistant with experience in comprehensive pain management. Patients who may benefit from surgery to relieve their chronic pain will be referred to one of Crystal Clinic’s surgeons for nationally-renowned orthopaedic care.
“Chronic pain can affect all aspects of a person’s life, often leading to depression and worsening discomfort that impacts their ability to participate in daily activities. Many suffer in silence believing their only treatment option is prescription medication which can have several adverse effects, including the risk for addiction,” said Dr. Goldner. “However, as the field of pain management continues to evolve, we are able to offer several other treatment options to minimize our patients’ chronic pain and improve their quality of life.”
Conditions that may be treated by Crystal Clinic Pain Management include neck and back pain, such as sciatica, arthritis pain in the spine and joints, persistent pain following back or neck surgery, work-related injuries, Complex Regional Pain Syndrome, nerve damage, muscle spasm pain and shingles pain.
“The addition of pain management services will elevate and enhance Crystal Clinic’s nationally-renowned care, as we continue to provide innovative treatment options, individually tailored to each patient, to address their chronic pain and help them get back to the activities they enjoy most,” said Stacy Parson, director of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, QuickCare Operations and Pain Management at Crystal Clinic Orthopaedic Center.
Crystal Clinic Pain Management is located at 3975 Embassy Parkway in Fairlawn. For appointments, call 330-668-6789. A physician referral is not required, but is recommended. To learn more, visit CrystalClinic.com.
