Do you struggle with chronic pain? A key component in a successful diagnosis is the ability to describe your symptoms. Our skilled team of pain management specialists at Carle McLean County Orthopedics will sit down and discuss the location, severity, type of pain you are experiencing, and the possible causes. We specialize in a variety of areas, including shoulder, knee, hip, back, neck, elbow, foot, ankle, and hand and wrist pain. No matter your condition, our highly-skilled physicians will work hard to alleviate your symptoms so you can return to your regular routine.

To continue to comprehensively care for our patients, Carle MCO has added an in-house Pain Procedure Suite that often helps patients feel immediate relief. This provides a more convenient experience for our patients in addition to reduced overall cost with on-site pain injections and Radiofrequency Ablation (RFAs). Learn more about the Pain Procedure Suite today!

Back Pain

Having back pain is relatively common and can occur at any time. However, it is a condition that can be treatable if appropriately managed. Causes of back pain could include sports-related injuries, improper lifting of heavy equipment, physical exertion, bad posture, or uncomfortable sleeping positions and can happen at any time. Back pain can also be associated with medical issues, such as osteoporosis, ruptured or herniated disc, or even sciatica. Carle MCO's pain specialists are trained in all areas of interventional pain medicine and management techniques and are ready to help you live pain-free.

Neck Pain

Neck pain can often result from poor posture, leaning towards something, sleeping in the wrong position, or even hunching over for too long. Neck discomfort can be attributed to a worn joint from overuse, muscle strains, or even neck compression issues. While these types of pain may not be serious, if you experience neck pain associated with pain shooting down your arm or numbness in your arms or hands, call a doctor immediately.
