This content was provided by Dr. Mendoza "Welcome to Vulcan Pain Management. Here you will find an effective, compassionate, and comprehensive solution to your chronic pain syndrome. I have been successful in treating severe back or neck pain, severe degenerative arthritis, fibromylagia, and migraine headache where others have failed. These are but a few of the conditions I treat. My treatments are non-surgical in nature and attack your condition from many angles. Initially my goal is to stabilize and reduce symptoms. Then the focus shifts to improving physical dysfunction, and identifying any nutritional, metabolic, or hormonal deficiencies contributing to the problem.
As each patient is unique, I have many treatments available including anti-inflammatory pain blocks, therapeutic hypnosis, state of the art Erchonia laser therapy, and electromagnetic energy treatments. Of course there are medications that can reduce pain, inflammation, and neuropathic symptoms."
