Pain management is an area of medicine that specializes in developing plans to treat pain. There are two types of pain: acute and chronic pain.
Acute pain is sudden, sometimes severe, pain that develops after an injury or medical condition. This type of pain is normal and usually goes away once the underlying injury or medical condition resolves.
Chronic pain is pain that lasts three or more months. This type of pain may develop after acute pain or from an underlying health condition.
The Southern Idaho Pain Institute PC team includes one of the leading pain management specialists in the country. They provide pain management services for acute and chronic pain conditions.

Southern Idaho Pain Institute offers conservative and minimally invasive pain management treatments.
Conservative pain management includes medications and physical therapy. The team may first recommend conservative pain management for your condition.
Treatment may include over-the-counter pain medication or prescription pain medication, depending on the cause and severity of your pain. Physical therapy for pain may include heat and ice or an exercise program.
When conservative pain management fails to provide significant relief, the Southern Idaho Pain Institute PC team may recommend minimally invasive pain management treatments.
The pain management specialists perform minimally invasive procedures at their state-of-the-art ambulatory surgical center. Some of the minimally invasive procedures they offer include epidural injections, radiofrequency ablation, spinal cord stimulation, hyaluronic acid injections, and nerve blocks.
Platelet-rich plasma or PRP therapy is also available for many chronic pain conditions, like arthritis in the hips or knees.
All the minimally invasive pain management procedures the team performs are safe and clinically proven to be highly effective.
