Maryland Pain Specialists Treatments, Procedures and Technology

Our goal here at Maryland Pain Specialists is to treat patients in the greater Baltimore, Maryland area, suffering from spine, joint, and nerve pain. Built on a network of highly skilled, Board Certified and Johns Hopkins Fellowship Trained doctors, we specialize in comprehensive assessments and long term pain management. We are dedicated to finding successful non-narcotic treatments when ever possible to help our patients get back to work and stay physically active.

All patients here at Maryland Pain Specialists undergo comprehensive assessment including history and physical examination at their first visit. Part of the evaluation may involve a series of questionnaires or surveys designed to fully understand all aspects of the pain problem. These surveys include questions about physical and mental health to determine how the pain impacts physical functioning and quality of life. Our treatment plans are individualized to each patient by a highly-trained team of physicians, nurses, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants, whom will be available at all time to answer any questions you may have.

Below are a comprehensive list of treatments, procedures and technology that we specialize in with treating patients suffering from spine, joint, and nerve pain.

All procedures except for some joint and trigger point injections are fluoroscopically guided.

Interventional Procedures

Ancillary Services

Most patients with chronic pain will not respond to a single-line therapy such as an injection or a medication. Routinely, multi-disciplinary treatments are necessary. Accordingly, patients may be referred for physical therapy, TENS unit, acupuncture, or cognitive behavioral therapies under the direction of a pain psychologist. Some patients may need further medical work-up by a surgeon, neurologist, rheumatologist, or psychiatrist. When appropriate, EMG/NCV, x-rays, MRIs, or other laboratory tests will be ordered. Select patients may require urine toxicology screen. Addiction medicine specialists are available.

  • Physical Therapy
  • Acupuncture
  • TENS Units
  • Urine Toxicology
  • EMG / NCV (Nerve Conduction Studies)
  • MRI / X-Ray / Bone Scan / CT Scans
  • Consultation with Surgeons, Neurologists, Physiatrist, Rheumatologists, Pain Psychologists, and Addiction Specialists as necessary.

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Injections

PRP is used to treat musculoskeletal injuries. It’s use has exploded with professional athletes looking for the fastest natural ways to get back to competition. Just this year PRP has been used in professional football, baseball and basketball players. PRP has been tested and shown to be effective for hamstring tendonitis, tennis elbow or elbow tendonopathy and plantar fasciitis. PRP has also been shown to be effective for arthritis pain in the hip and knee with promising new data for shoulder and sacroiliac arthritis as well. Historically these conditions have been treated with steroid injections. These may still be appropriate, but multiple steroid injection weaken the tissues over time while PRP can strengthen them.

Consider PRP for:

  • Hip arthritis
  • Knee arthritis
  • Shoulder Arthritis
  • Hamstring tendonitis
  • Elbow tendonitis, AKA Tennis elbow, chronic extensor tendonitis
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Rotator Cuff tendonitis
  • Sacroiliac joint pain
