Treatment Options

APMSC is able to provide prescription medications when appropriate. The types of medications offered and the duration of each prescription is crafted based upon the individual needs of each patient.

Interventional Injection Therapies

To assist with either determining the source of your pain or trying to directly treat an anatomical area that has been determined to be painful, our providers can use image-guided injection therapies to deliver medications to the painful area. When we perform our injection procedure, our providers choose to use a generous amount of local anesthetic (“novocaine”), to perform our pain injection procedures without causing any additional anxiety or pain to our patients. At APMSC, we have the most technically advanced fluoroscope in the state of New Mexico. In most cases, your injection procedure can be done safely in our office setting without the need for an inconvenient visit to a hospital or Ambulatory Surgery Center.

Diagnostic Testing

Oftentimes, routine x-rays are not sufficient to obtain a proper pain diagnosis. With many patients, advanced imaging studies such as flexion and extension x-rays, MRI, CT scanning, or ultrasound imaging may be needed to help us determine the source of your pain. We work with most of the imaging centers in New Mexico and will find the best imaging center that meets our medical needs and your lifestyle.

Physical Rehabilitation

APMSC will routinely refer to our colleagues in physical rehabilitation as part of a multidisciplinary approach to addressing your pain and functional limitations. Our providers support all types of therapy for their patients including chiropractic care, physical therapy, massage therapy, acupuncture, yoga, pilates, and home exercise programs. They will make recommendations for rehabilitation based upon your individual needs.

Subspecialist Referral

In most cases, APMSC will be able to determine the primary source of your pain and provide non-surgical options for treatment. However, there may be times when a referral is needed to address a condition that falls outside of the scope of practice for our providers. We may refer to neurosurgery, orthopedic surgery, behavioral health or other specialists to assist in the care of our patients. Prior to any referral, we will explain why such a referral is medically necessary.
