Surgery – Many times, your pain problem may be partially or completely alleviated by surgery. We are happy to refer you to any surgeon you choose. However, we ask that if the surgeon recommends a “block” (pain procedure), you have the “block” performed at our clinic, as we are a multidisciplinary clinic managing your entire pain care, including your medication.
Health Related Professions – We strongly believe in working with Physical Therapists and other health related professionals to manage your pain. We will be happy to refer you to a place of your choosing.
Functional Capacity Evaluation (FCE) – We are not able to objectively determine work limitations, restrictions, or disabilities. We ask our patients to obtain a FCE to give us objective data to provide to your insurance company when we receive these requests. There are several PT and rehab clinics in Birmingham and the surrounding areas that perform FCEs.
Durable Medical Equipment (DME) – We work with several companies to provide you with high quality, useful DME. DME includes things like back braces, knee braces, TENS units, and wrist splints, which are helpful in treating many painful conditions.
