Interventional Pain and Spine Program at Spaulding Rehabilitation Outpatient Center Sandwich
Interventional pain management may help you manage your pain in conjunction with other treatment modalities. In addition to conservative treatment such as prescription medications, an interventional pain management approach uses injections to help diagnose and treat the source of pain. The goal is to reduce pain so that you may resume normal activities.
When indicated, procedures may be done under fluoroscopic (X-ray) guidance.
Procedures may include:
- Epidural steroid injections (ESI)
- Facet joint block
- Sympathetic and parasympathetic nerve block
- Trigger point injection (TPI)
- Radiofrequency ablation

Scott Abramson, MD
Dr. Abramson specializes in the treatment of spine disorders (including fluoroscopically-guided lumbar epidural injections, nerve blocks, facet injections, and SI joint injections); spasticity management (including EMG-guided Botox injections); neurological and orthopedic rehabilitation; nerve conduction studies; electromyography; trigger point injections; and sports medicine.
Daniel Sheehan, MD
Dr. Sheehan specializes in the management of spine problems, chronic pain, and fatigue. In addition to neck and back pain, Dr. Sheehan also treats joint pain, diseases of aging, relative energy deficiency, and running injuries. From elite performance to debilitating arthritis, Dr. Sheehan has cured a wide range of patients. Procedure techniques that Dr. Sheehan uses include Spinal injections with fluoroscopic guidance and Regenerative medicines such as platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and stem cell procedures. To reset the normal healing cycle, Dr. Sheehan manages neuroinflammation, hormones, neurotransmitters, and cell signaling proteins. For example, testosterone replacement, treatment of underlying infections, and immune system modulators can rebalance energy demands, control excessive inflammation, and remove toxic senescent cells. These are only some of his strategies to restore optimal function.
