At PMIR Medical Center, we work hard, and we play hard – and so do our patients. We have many patients who come to us with a debilitating or chronic injury while participating in their favorite sport or outdoor activity. We know how important it is for sports enthusiasts to recover from an injury as soon as possible and get back to doing what they love. We want to help our active and athletic patients recover with the most innovative and least invasive sports injury treatment methods available. The symptoms of sudden or chronic pain prevent you from participating in the sports you love. But they also limit your ability to enjoy your day-to-day activities and family life. Maybe you’ve had your sports injury treated by a doctor, or maybe you’ve tried to let your body heal on its own. Either way, if you’re still dealing with pain, it’s time to see an interventional pain management specialist.
Interventional Pain Management
What is interventional pain management? Interventional pain management is a specialized approach that concentrates on using minimally-invasive techniques to reduce your pain level. This approach also helps your body to heal faster in general. Our specialists can often help you avoid surgery and long-term pain medication to get back to living your most active life sooner.
Sports injuries can happen at any time. An injury could be a sudden trauma while you are doing an activity, or it could be a mild injury that gets worse over time. If you are experiencing any sudden or chronic pain or noticing any of the symptoms below and don’t seem to be improving with time, it may be time to seek a doctor’s help.
Common Symptoms of Sports Injuries
- Limited functionality.
- Swelling in the affected area.
- Inability to support the weight.
- Tenderness in the location of the injury.
- A dull, generalized ache in the affected area.
- Redness, bruising, or discoloration of the skin.
- Sharp and/or intermittent pain caused by certain movements.
Our goal at PMIR Medical Center is to help our most active patients find relief and get back in the game. For the best long-term result and to avoid further injuries, it is imperative that your injury is diagnosed properly. Our sports injury treatment specialists are here to assist you with a thorough examination. They offer the proper analysis necessary for your injury so that you can be restored to your full, pain-free mobility. Our physicians are experts at pinpointing and diagnosing the source of your pain.
We start by listening to what’s going on with you and asking questions to diagnose your pain.

The goal is minimizing your pain, increasing your functionality, and getting you back to being you as soon as possible.
