TIER 1 Interventional Pain Management

A Comprehensive Approach to Chronic Pain

Interventional pain management is a treatment method that involves pain-blocking techniques that help make daily activities less difficult for people with issues such as chronic headaches and mouth, face, low back, neck, muscle and joint pain. Fortunately for chronic pain sufferers, there are many new advances in pain management that don’t involve taking oral medications.

Tier 1 Interventional Pain Management employs a multidisciplinary treatment approach that includes both basic and advanced image-guided interventional procedures for acute and chronic spine and joint pain. These techniques may be used in conjunction with physical therapy, chiropractic care, acupuncture, yoga and massage to further manage pain and support healing.

Our Mission

At Tier 1 Interventional Pain Management, our mission is to provide patients with the most advanced treatments to not only help with pain, but to improve function and quality of life so they can play with their grandchildren, walk through the grocery store, return to fitness activities, and much more.
