Phoenix, Arizona (PRWEB) February 03, 2016
Arizona Injury Medical Associates PLLC is now offering intercostal nerve blocks for patients suffering from rib related pain. The procedures are offered by a Double Board Certified physician at the practice with exceptional results. Simply call (480) 347-0941 for more information and scheduling.
Rib pain may be disabling for patients who have suffered a rib fracture while on the job or involved in an auto accident. It can make it painful to even breathe during everyday activities and significantly limit one's activities. Another instance of rib related pain may be after surgery in the spine or lung area that needed an incision in the rib cage. This can lead to significant nerve related pain in the area afterwards.
The intercostal nerve block is placed just under the affected rib area(s), with the pain doctor placing both numbing medicine and steroid medication. Typically pain relief is immediate and often lasts for weeks to months. It can easily be repeated if the pain returns.
The procedure is performed as an outpatient by the Board Certified physician at the practice, Demitri Adarmes MD. Dr. Adarmes is highly skilled as an Arizona and Federal workers compensation doctor, along with expertly treating those needing care under a personal injury lien.
Along with intercostal nerve blocks, Arizona Injury Medical Associates PLLC offers over twenty five nonoperative treatments. This includes all types of joint injections and nerve blocks, along with occipital blocks and trigger point therapy.
With the vast majority of patients being able to avoid the need for potentially risky surgery, Arizona Injury Medical Associates PLLC attracts patients from a broad area in Arizona and throughout the country.
