Pain Management

Pain management refers to a comprehensive approach to alleviate or control pain experienced by individuals, whether it is acute or chronic. It encompasses a range of techniques, therapies, and interventions aimed at improving the quality of life for people dealing with pain. The ultimate goal of pain management is to reduce pain levels, increase functionality, and enhance overall well-being.

Interventional Pain Management Procedures

Interventional pain management procedures encompass a range of minimally invasive techniques to relieve chronic pain and improve a patient’s quality of life. These procedures directly target the source of pain, offering a more targeted and often more effective approach than traditional pain management methods. 

Examples of interventional pain management procedures include nerve blocks, epidural steroid injections, facet joint injections, radiofrequency ablation, and spinal cord stimulation. These procedures are typically performed by skilled pain management specialists under image guidance, ensuring precise placement and optimal outcomes. Interventional pain management procedures can provide long-lasting relief by interrupting pain signals or reducing inflammation at the site of pain, allowing individuals to regain functionality, engage in daily activities, and enjoy improved overall well-being.

Interventional pain management procedures are minimally invasive medical techniques aimed at diagnosing and treating chronic or severe pain conditions. These procedures are often used when conservative treatments like medications and physical therapy have not provided sufficient relief. The main goal of interventional pain management is to target the source of pain and provide relief without the need for extensive surgeries.

Some common interventional pain management procedures include:

This involves injecting a corticosteroid and sometimes a local anesthetic into the epidural space of the spine to reduce inflammation and relieve pain caused by conditions like herniated discs or spinal stenosis.

In this procedure, a corticosteroid and anesthetic are injected into the facet joints of the spine to alleviate pain caused by arthritis or facet joint syndrome.

Numbing medication is injected into or around a specific nerve or group of nerves to block pain signals from reaching the brain. Common types include occipital nerve blocks, sciatic nerve blocks, and celiac plexus blocks.

This procedure uses heat generated by radio waves to disable specific nerves and disrupt pain signals. RFA is often used to manage chronic pain in the spine, neck, or joints.

A small device is implanted near the spine to deliver electrical currents that interfere with pain signals, providing relief for conditions like failed back surgery syndrome or complex regional pain syndrome.

A device is implanted to deliver pain-relieving medications directly into the spinal fluid, providing more targeted and effective pain relief for certain conditions.

Corticosteroids and anesthetics are injected into joints, such as the knee, shoulder, or hip, to reduce inflammation and manage pain associated with arthritis or injury.

A small amount of anesthetic or saline is injected into painful muscle knots or trigger points to provide relief and promote muscle relaxation.

These procedures involve injecting bone cement into fractured vertebrae to stabilize them and reduce pain caused by vertebral compression fractures.

It’s essential to note that interventional pain management procedures should only be performed by experienced Clearway Pain Solutions healthcare professionals in Crestview, such as pain specialists or interventional pain physicians. These procedures carry potential risks and should be considered after a thorough evaluation of the patient’s condition and a discussion of the potential benefits and risks.

I walked up to the receptionist area and was greeted by the sweetest smile and a voice filled with merriment. The Receptionist treated everyone with the same warmth.

The nurse called me back and was efficient and attentive. When I related my situation with a new doctor appointment elsewhere, she quickly related it to Doctor Diadema Barefield.

Dr. D came in immediately with her usual smile and little giggle and said she would get me through as quickly as possible without excluding pertinent information. She did as promised and left in time to make my other appointment.

These people are very professional and I have to say I've never seen a great service so abused by patients/ customers. They didn't break or fold. From the front desk to the assistants from the back ,when I witnessed them being mistreated by customers,they were still... Patient,kind, and loving. They will get the best , because they deserve it. As for me and my family (a patient) we are very grateful for all of you,the team effort is everything to those in need,and you all rock.

Dealing with everyone at the Crestview office is very good.
But the phone service needs a ninty percent improvement and they need to be more pleasant. When they tell someone to call back on a certain date they should be able to make the appointments.

The examination was very thorough and what I expected. I've gone to pain management centers in Tampa FL and Savannah GA (because I had to work in both cities) and Clearway lived up to the standards set by the facilities in both if those cities.
The doctor was knowledgeable and the staff was very pleasant to work with too.
I have nothing bad to.say about my experience there.

Dr. Amore actually takes time to sit down, look at me, and listen to me as though I'm a thinking person. So many doctors nowadays barely look at a patient. He's very knowledgeable of different therapies, and has truly improved my quality of life. Everyone there is kind and courteous. I highly recommend Clearway Pain.

Commercial plans with out-of-network benefit coverages also accepted.

Background
Medicare initiated the Bundled Payments for Care Improvement (BPCI) that ensures facilities enter payment arrangements that include financial and performance outcomes for episodes of care. These outcomes lead to higher quality and lower cost to Medicare. Previously Medicare would make separate payments to providers for each service provided during a single course of treatment leading to fragmented care and outcomes (CMS, 2016). Patients have the right to price transparency and what is included in bundled services or a single fee that accounts for several components to care.

Beneficiary Choice
Patients can always choose which providers or facilities to obtain care through regardless of participating status with BPCI initiatives. Patients will retain their full Medicare benefits regardless. The redesign is to improve quality of care while lowering the cost of care to Medicare.

Bundled Payment Process
Patients who private pay for services may benefit from bundled payments as it allows for more timely allowance to prepare financially for services. Private pay patients can expect a $399 facility fee that includes imaging, medication and supplies during the procedure in addition to the separate procedure fee. Patients have the choice of what facility they would like to receive treatment from.

Patients are encouraged to compare pricing for procedures through Florida Health Price Finder.

Patients will receive three billing statements and a collection letter if no payment or payment plan have been made. Please reach out to your Patient Billing Liaison with any questions pertaining to your statement to avoid going to collections.
