Interventional Pain Management

Interventional Pain Management Joplin Missouri


Pain can be very complicated, but is essentially the body’s way of telling you there’s something wrong. Ortho Four States believes surgery shouldn’t be the first or only option offered to alleviate the pain and suffering negatively impacting patients’ lives. Interventional pain management is a specialized area of pain management used to assess, identify, and treat complex pain-causing conditions. Dr. Michael L. Hearndon is a physical medicine and rehabilitation doctor serving Joplin, Missouri, and the entire region. He specializes and is fellowship-trained in interventional pain management and is board-certified in physical medicine and rehabilitation. Dr. Hearndon’s approach to pain relief is combined with a judicious use of interventional techniques and therapy over pharmacologic treatments.

As a pain management doctor, Dr. Hearndon also utilizes osteopathic manipulation therapy (OMT) and incorporates alternative methods of pain management. He teaches patients self-healing techniques through specific training and correction of postures and muscle imbalance.

Ortho Four States is the only practice in the region to offer Dorsal root ganglion (DRG) stimulation, which is an outpatient neuromodulation therapy that assists in blocking pain before it can be processed to the neck, back, and spine and central nervious system.

If chronic pain is a part of your life, you don’t have to wait to make an appointment to consult our pain management specialists. We look forward to serving you.
