Pain Management Q & A
What is pain management?
Pain medicine is a field of medicine dedicated to helping patients manage and reduce their pain. In many cases, the exact cause of painful symptoms is unknown or misunderstood.
With over 19 years of experience, Dr. Nasir provides in-depth health evaluations to determine the best treatment for each patient.
Pain management includes a number of safe and effective treatments and procedures proven to reduce pain. Dr. Nasir and his team provide all types of pain, including acute (sudden-onset) pain, chronic (long-term) pain, and postoperative pain.
What conditions can be addressed with pain management?
Pain management is used to address a number of painful conditions, including:
- Torn muscles
- Rotator cuff injuries
- Frozen shoulder
- Neck pain
- Chronic back pain
- Spinal stenosis
- Failed knee surgery
- Herniated or bulging discs
- Degenerative disc disease

During your initial appointment, Dr. Nasir does a physical exam and imaging test to better understand your condition. He uses this information along with your medical history to guide your treatment and provide the most effective solutions to your painful symptoms.
What services are available?
Skilled Pain Care Clinic offers a number of effective options to relieve your pain. Treatment is based on the details of your condition and the severity of your pain.
Depending on your condition, Dr. Nasir could recommend:
Radiofrequency ablation is a nonsurgical procedure that uses radiofrequency energy to destroy nerves responsible for transmitting your pain signals. Radiofrequency ablation effectively stops the pain signals from traveling between the affected area and your brain.
Radiofrequency ablation requires no downtime and often results in immediate pain relief. The procedure is commonly done to address issues like chronic lower back pain and is also used to effectively treat neck, back, knee, and pelvic pain.
Regenerative medicine is a field of medicine that focuses on tissue regeneration as a way to promote healing and relieve pain. Dr. Nasir provides a number of innovative regenerative therapies, including stem cell and platelet-rich plasma (PRP).
Regenerative therapies are used to increase blood flow to injury sites and speed up healing. Regenerative medicine is commonly used to repair damaged tendons, ligaments, muscles, joints, and bone.
If you experience joint-related pain, joint injections can help preserve the function and structure of your joints and relieve painful symptoms.
Dr. Nasir offers steroid injections to reduce swelling and inflammation in affected joints. He also offers viscosupplementation injections like hyaluronic acid to restore lubrication to damaged joints.
Dr. Nasir provides a number of additional treatments, including:
- Physical therapy
- Pain medication
- Nerve blocks
- Botox® injections
