Our experienced team of experts is committed to helping patients find relief with treatments that are minimally invasive and individually personalized. Our Pain Management Center serves the Dallas and Fort Worth community with convenient locations in Colleyville, Dallas, Frisco, and Rockwall.

Acute Pain Management


Acute pain, which is a conditional and temporary pain that lasts no longer than six months, may occur as a result of an injury or surgery. While acute pain is specific, there can be a variety of root causes. Our team of experts can diagnose the origin of your acute pain in order to personalize your treatment and provide pain relief with medication, minimally invasive injections, or alternative therapies.

Pain Management

Pain has a number of causes, including traumatic injury, nerve damage, arthritis, Fibromyalgia, as well as back conditions such as slipped discs, bone spurs, and pinched nerves. At DFW Spine Institute, we can help diagnose the cause of pain and alleviate debilitating symptoms with a variety of minimally invasive options. A personalized treatment plan will take your medical history and pain levels into account, and may include medication, minimally invasive injections, nerve blocks, or cryotherapy.

Medication Management

Treating pain is not a one-size-fits-all endeavor. At DFW Spine Institute, we take a comprehensive approach to understand and treat pain. Our experts assess each individual patient’s medical history, current prescriptions, pain levels, and lifestyle goals in order to create a medication plan that is appropriate. Proper medication management can help build resilience and minimize side effects to restore quality of life.

Alternative Pain Management

Alternative pain management includes lifestyle changes and non-traditional pain relief techniques which can be used in place of, or along with, conventional approaches such as medication. Alternative pain therapies can include acupuncture, professional massage, supplements, and stretching.

Electromyography (EMG)


Our experts are dedicated to finding the cause of discomfort as part of determining the optimal treatment plan for each patient. Electromyography, or EMG, is a diagnostic tool that allows our doctors to assess the complex spinal system to determine if symptoms are caused by damage to the nerves or muscles, and enables an accurate diagnosis of conditions such as pinched nerves, sciatica, or peripheral nerve injury.

Pain Mapping

The pain management specialists at DFW Spine Institute are dedicated to providing treatment that doesn’t just mask your pain, but actually treats the root causes of pain. Pain mapping is a method of utilizing a variety of diagnostic tools to uncover the source of your pain. Techniques in your customized pain mapping may include standard testing like magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to more advanced tools, such as discography.

Injections For Back, Neck, Leg and Arm Pain

If pain is preventing you from living a full and active life, pain management injections can be an effective and minimally invasive solution. Our doctors are experienced in administering injections for long-lasting pain relief. We offer a variety of injectable pain management options, including steroid injections and nerve blocks, as well as drug-free injections that utilize a patient’s own Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) or stem cells.

Nerve Blocks

Nerve blocks are pain relief injections that can help patients with pain in the upper back, lower back, neck, legs, shoulders, and arms. Nerve blocks may help improve mobility for patients whose pain interferes with work or daily tasks. Nerve blocks can also be utilized as a diagnostic tool to determine if pain is being caused by a nerve issue. We offer a variety of nerve blocks, including Epidural Nerve Blocks and Facet Joint Blocks.

Lumbar Radiofrequency Neurotomy

This innovative non-surgical pain relief procedure utilizes radio waves to relieve nerve pain. Lumbar Radiofrequency Neurotomy can treat a variety of pain issues in the neck and back, including Facet Joint Disorders, Whiplash, and Sacroiliac Joint (SI joint) Pain. This procedure requires minimal downtime and may be used in conjunction with other treatments.

Rhizotomy

Rhizotomy, or radiofrequency ablation (RFA), is a minimally invasive procedure that can alleviate pain for patients suffering from lower or upper back pain, muscle spasms, and symptoms of facet joint disease. Rhizotomy works by suppressing the roots of nerves that have been identified as the cause of a patient’s pain. This procedure involves no incisions and can provide long-lasting, effective pain relief.
