Ballard Pain & Wellness

Services

Ballard Pain & Wellness is your source for pain management services in Pell City, Alabama. Dr. Horne-Ballard is board certified in both anesthesiology and interventional pain management. No other doctor in the region is better qualified to address your unique situation.

We offer numerous services to treat pain caused by illness or injury, including acute (short-term) and chronic (long-term) pain. The goal of treatment is to promote healing and provide immediate relief as well as long-term management of pain.

Therapeutic Injections

Injections of special medication are delivered directly to the source of your pain. This is an effective treatment for chronic muscle, joint, nerve, and radiating pain.

Epidural and joint injections combine the power of an anti-inflammatory medication with a local anesthetic that may provide immediate and long-lasting relief for several weeks or months. Selective nerve blocks also provide immediate relief by numbing specific nerves that send pain signals to the brain.

  • Epidural injections (cervical, thoracic, lumbar)
  • Caudal epidurals
  • Transforaminal epidurals
  • Facet joint injections
  • Sacroiliac joint injection
  • Trigger point injections
  • Selective nerve root block
  • Occipital nerve block
  • Ganglion of impar block
  • Sphenopalatine ganglion block
  • Stellate ganglion block

Chronic Pain Management

Managing chronic pain is exactly that. We may not be able to completely eliminate your pain, but we can find healthy ways to minimize it so you can do the things you want to do. Dr. Gaylyn Horne-Ballard will show you how to cope with the pain on a daily basis, including helpful self-care strategies to deal with flare-ups.

In the clinic, we offer several non-surgical options for chronic pain management, including many of the therapeutic injections listed above.

Medication Management

Along with the goal of reducing or eliminating your pain, a pain management treatment program may include medication management.

Dr. Horne-Ballard helps hundreds of patients by managing their medications. This requires routine check-ups with the doctor to monitor your symptoms and adjust dosages as needed to get the maximum benefit of your medication.

If you no longer need a medication, we can help you make that decision.
