Welcome to Marshall Medical

Pain Clinic

Interventional pain management in a convenient, state-of-the-art facility.

The Marshall Pain Clinic is a state-of-the-art facility with experienced RN and Radiology staff. Traveling out of the area to receive treatment can be agonizing for the sufferer, costly, and difficult to schedule. The Pain Clinic at Marshall Professional Center provides treatment options to the residents of Marshall County and surrounding areas in a convenient, close-to-home setting.

The Pain Clinic provides medical intervention as part of a multi-disciplinary approach to chronic pain management. Interventional treatment includes any and all efforts to "intervene" in the production and/or transmission of a pain signal with the body. In most cases, this means identifying and treating the underlying cause of a particular pain. In other cases, where the pathology of the pain cannot be successfully addressed through medical or surgical therapy, the "intervention" takes on the form of "pain control" such as physical therapy and/or psychological services.
