Suffering with spine, joint, or nerve pain takes a huge toll on someone’s quality of life. A new Fayetteville health facility - Cape Fear Valley Interventional Pain Specialists - is here to help these patients relieve pain while improving function and mobility. Having celebrated its grand opening at 1205 Walter Reed Road on March 4, 2024, Cape Fear Valley’s new interventional pain clinic is the first of its kind in the Cape Fear Valley Health system.

With a capacity to see up to two dozen patients per day, the clinic will offer a range of interventional pain management techniques to treat people experiencing chronic pain in their back, neck, joints, and more. Under the direction of Dr. Judit Andrea Cope, patients will have the opportunity to explore different modalities for treating chronic pain conditions that target specific nerves, muscles, joints, or other structures in the body.

Common interventional pain treatments available at Cape Fear Valley Interventional Pain Specialists include:

  • Epidural steroid injections that can reduce inflammation and alleviate pain caused by herniated discs, spinal stenosis, or radiculopathy;
  • Joint injections that help to reduce inflammation, lubricate the joint, and alleviate pain from conditions such as osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis;
  • Trigger point injections that help relax tight muscles and alleviate pain associated with conditions such as myofascial pain syndrome or fibromyalgia;
  • Nerve blocks that can relieve pain for people with conditions such as sciatica, occipital neuralgia, or complex regional pain syndrome; and
  • Spinal Cord Stimulation (SCS) trials, which is another minimally invasive procedure that delivers electrical impulses to the spinal cord to interrupt the transmission of pain signals to the brain. SCS is typically used to treat chronic back or leg pain that has not responded to other treatments.

Additional interventional procedures offered by the clinic include radiofrequency ablation, botulinum toxin injections for spasticity and migraine management, a Baclofen pump trial and management, and more.

Interventional pain treatments can be used alone or in combination with other therapies. Of course, the specific treatment plan will depend on the patient’s medical history, underlying cause of the pain, and the severity of symptoms.

Cape Fear Valley Interventional Pain Specialists is ready to serve the community by helping to reduce debilitating pain and get people back to doing what they love most. The clinic is currently accepting new patients, and is open Mondays through Thursdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Fridays from 8 a.m. to Noon. For appointments, call (910) 615-7246 (PAIN).
