Dr. Pena's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Pena "I believe in a holistic approach to pain therapy because I recognize that pain can affect many aspects of a patient's life. I was trained in interventional pain management using minimally invasive techniques to relieve, reduce or manage pain. These techniques include fluoroscopic imaging, spinal cord stimulation, steroid injections, nerve blocks and radiofrequency ablation. Pain management also includes treatments such as physical therapy, medication management, and behavior modification. I have experience treating cancer pain, fibromyalgia, myofacial pain and providing palliative pain care at the end of life. In addition to interventional medicine, I believe in using complimentary therapies, such as acupuncture and massage therapy, when they are appropriate. I try to give my patients options for managing their pain and improve their functionality and overall quality of life."
