Interventional Pain Institute in Washington, Pennsylvania, provides primarily interventional pain management for chronic pain syndromes (pain lasting greater than six [6] weeks).  We offer interventions which often treats pain rather than providing a temporary medication solution.  However, we do provide medical management for those patients who would benefit the most from medication therapy.  Whether you're experiencing spinal stenosis, chronic back or neck pain, diabetic neuropathy, or cancer pain, you can count on our office to provide effective pain relief solutions. Contact us today for more details.  Most insurances are accepted.
