Crystal Clinic Orthopaedic Center in Fairlawn, Ohio, opened a new pain management service line, offering a multifaceted approach to pain management, June 1.
The specialized service line uses 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.
The service will treat conditions including neck and back pain, such as sciatica, arthritis pain in the spine and joints, persistent postsurgical pain, work-related injuries, complex regional pain syndrome, nerve damage, muscle spasm pain, and shingles pain.
Services will be provided by Joshua Goldner, MD, a board-certified and fellowship-trained pain medicine specialist and anesthesiologist, and Deborah Corbin, a board-certified physician assistant with experience in comprehensive pain management. Patients who may benefit from surgical treatment for their pain will be referred to a Crystal Clinic surgeon.
"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," Stacy Parson, director of physical medicine and rehabilitation, QuickCare operations, and pain management at Crystal Clinic Orthopaedic Center, said in a June 1 press release from Crystal Clinic.
