What treatment might be right for me?

Pain2Manage team offers traditional spinal and joint injections, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and stem cell procedures, as well as ketamine infusions to treat inflammatory conditions and acute/chronic pain.

Pain2Manage team also specialized in various aesthetics procedures to enhance skin/hair appearance and reduce/elimminate scarring.

Steroid Injections

Steroid injections are used to inject corticosteroids to treat inflammatory conditions and relieve pain in the soft tissues and bones. The effect of these injections vary, from minimal to significant long term. Our team will evaluate and provide guidance for the patient’s best course of treatment.

Some of the steroid injections we offer include:

  • occipital nerve injections
  • cervical interlaminar epidural steroid injection
  • cervical facet injection
  • cervical medial branch block
  • cervical radiofrequency ablation (RFA)
  • lumbar interlaminar epidural steroid injection
  • lumbar transforaminal epidural steroid injection
  • lumbar facet injection
  • lumbar medial branch block
  • lumbar radiofrequency ablation (RFA)
  • piriformis muscle injections
  • sacroiliac joint injection

PRP/ Stem Cell Treatments

RPR/Stem Cell injections help regenerate many areas of the body and it has been shown to improve function and decrease pain of numerous conditions.

PRP injections use patients own blood that is processed in injected into the treated area. Stem cell injections use much more complex process of “growing” stem cells. They not only boost tissue regeneration, but also coordinate entire healing mechanism.

Medical Legal Evaluations

Division of Workers' Compensation (DWC) is in charge of providing California workers and employers with a no-fault means of resolving claims resulting from on-the-job injuries. A worker enters the Workers' Compensation system when he/she is injured. The worker then may be evaluated by one or more specialists to determine legal issues related to the injury.

We provide expert medical legal services (Qualified or Agreed Medical Evaluations - QME/AME) in the area of musculoskeletal injuries. Upon careful assessment and examination, the following will be provided to requesting party:

  • Worker's eligibility for benefits
  • Ability to return to work
  • Permanent and stationary status of the employee's medical condition
  • Existence and extent of permanent disability
  • Employee's preclusion or likely preclusion from engaging in his or her usual occupation
  • Extent and scope of medical treatment
  • Existence of new and further disability

PRP in Aesthetic Medicine

PRP has been used aesthetically for:

  • Face/Neck Skin Rejuvenation
  • Scarring/Stretch Mark Reduction
  • Hair Growth Promotion
PRP is a plasma with a super-physiologic concentration of platelets. The platelets contain growth factors essential for healing and regeneration processes, making it a very powerful tool in aesthetic medicine.
Patient’s own blood is processed in the centrifuge in order to extract platelets and produce PRP. The concentrated PRP is injected through a set of micro-injections or through a dermaroller into the treated area. PRP treatments can be used on all skin types and tones. Entire procedure length depends on the area treated but will last an hour on average.

Some swelling, bruising, and redness will disappear within first 12-24 hours. Side effects are insignificant, mostly risks associated with needle puncture into tissue. Because the product is derived from the patients’ own blood, there are no risks usually associated with blood products like transfusion reaction, allergic or immune reaction.

Patients expect to notice improvement within 3 weeks. Booster treatments might be required after 6 months.
