We are pleased you chose Doctor Myrna Zalaket to diagnose, treat, and manage your pain. The following are our office hours:
When it comes to pain management, doctors can take many different approaches. One such approach is interventional pain management. Interventional pain medicine utilizes a multidisciplinary approach in which a team of healthcare professionals works together to provide a full range of treatments and services for patients suffering from chronic or acute pain. This can include injections, nerve blocks, and other similar treatments.
The goals of interventional pain management are to relieve, reduce, or manage pain and improve a patient’s overall quality of life through minimally invasive techniques designed to diagnose and treat painful conditions. Interventional pain management also seeks to help patients return to everyday activities quickly and without heavy reliance on medications.
Dr. Myrna Zalaket treats many different types of pain, including complex pain syndromes. Our medical providers work with your referring physician, including physical and occupational therapists, oncologists, and psychiatrists or psychologists, to provide adequate pain management.
Chronic pain is pain that lasts 3 to 6 or more months, like rheumatic pain, fibromyalgia, osteoarthritis, herniated disk, migraine, cancer, etc.
Between 10 to 20 min and the patient will leave the clinic after 20 to 30 min.
The maximum we can do is three (3) consecutive infiltrations in 6 months, with 2 to 4 weeks between each infiltration.
It’s good to have three (3) hours fasting before a procedure.
Often you can relieve a herniated disk with rest, pain relievers, and physical therapy. Infiltrations can heal the pain in most cases, and we can avoid surgery as the disc often shrinks by itself after a few months.
But surgery may be an option if your symptoms don’t improve after a certain period.
