Medications are an essential component of chronic pain management. Springfield Clinic Interventional Pain Management emphasizes the use of powerful non-opioid pain medications that are clinically proven to be highly effective in the treatment of chronic pain syndromes. Furthermore, we strictly adhere to federal and state guidelines regarding opioid prescribing and monitoring. The latest scientific research and government guidelines repeatedly emphasize that opioids are neither effective nor safe for treating the vast majority of chronic painful conditions.
We seek to reduce dependence on potentially addictive and dangerous opioid pain medications through our multidisciplinary program emphasizing proven interventional therapies and functional rehabilitation. We are passionate about providing safer, innovative solutions that maximize benefits and minimize risks for patients suffering from disabling chronic pain conditions.
We support the Surgeon General’s call to end the opioid crisis. Learn more >>
