Managing pain is an integral part of a patient’s treatment in recovering from an orthopedic injury or disorder. At Reid Orthopedics, our pain management team is dedicated to providing interventional treatment options for the management of acute and chronic pain.
Kisha Thomas, M.D., is our pain management specialist. She is an anesthesiologist who specializes in pain management. Dr. Thomas provides comprehensive pain management for patients with conditions such as degenerative disc disease, osteoarthritis and other spine- and joint-related conditions that cause pain. Her goal is to help patients be as active and functional as possible. She offers multidisciplinary pain management with a wide variety of therapies, such as epidural injections, peripheral nerve blocks and, when appropriate, spinal cord stimulators.
We know how real pain is and how it can restrict an individual’s lifestyle. Our goal is to provide a comprehensive, multidisciplinary approach to pain management and orthopedic conditions. Our pain management team has multiple resources to offer patients that can help reduce pain including physical therapy, medications and evaluation. Usually pain is treated beginning with the least invasive and less potent measure first. If these methods do not work, stronger approaches are then prescribed. Our team of experts carefully monitors each patient throughout their treatment.
Diagnostic tools and treatment options:
- Cervical and lumbar spine injections
- Evaluation and diagnosis of musculoskeletal and neurological problems
- Functional Capacity Evaluations (FCE)
- Independent Medical Evaluations (IME)
