Treatment of Pain

Pain can be a debilitating condition resulting from an injury or illness. It is not a one size fits all condition. Each patient requires a thorough evaluation and multifaceted approach to develop the most effective pain management treatment plan.

Opioids are needed in the treatment of pain but must not be the first line of treatment. There are many minimally invasive procedures, physical therapy, and non-narcotic therapies that can be utilized to allow you to return to your normal activities of daily living.

Novus Spine & Pain Center also includes an award-winning Vein Clinic. Since 2018, the Vein Clinic has been recognized as the “Best of Central Florida” Vascular Vein Clinic in Polk County’s Official Community Choice Awards.

The Vein Clinic at Novus Spine & Pain Center can repair and optimize the function of your veins. When the body’s veins do not function properly, they can cause improper blood flow and result in swelling (edema), varicose veins, or venous ulcers. These symptoms can worsen over time, producing severe pain and even open sores if you ignore them.

If you suffer from vein-related pain, such as spider or bulging veins, the Novus Spine & Pain Center Vein Clinic can treat the cause of your vein problems with minimally invasive interventional procedures.
