About Us

Pain services, such as interventional pain management, injections, blocks, and minimally invasive spine surgery help residents of Ocala, The Villages, and other areas of central Florida overcome the debilitating effects of chronic pain. You can learn about us on our website or come by our office.

What is a Pain Management Specialist?

A pain management specialist is a medical doctor with specialized training and experience in advanced and innovative therapies that aim to reduce chronic pain. Most of the treatments target the nerves that send pain messages to the brain. At Central Florida Pain Management, we specialize in therapies that are performed in conjunction with a type of primary medical treatment, such as physical therapy. The services that we provide reduce your chronic pain so that you can focus on healing and restoring your quality of life.

What Are the Benefits of a Pain Management Specialist?

Central Florida Pain Management and our physician Melissa Alvarez-Perez, M.D., stay abreast of the latest technologies for chronic pain treatments. We only perform chronic pain interventions, so we have more experience and expertise than a general practitioner, orthopedic specialist, and other types of clinicians whom you may have worked with to alleviate your chronic pain. Many of our patients can reduce their reliance on prescription medications for pain while enjoying activities that have been avoided due to the chronic pain in their bodies.

What Type of Treatments Are Available?

We offer several types of chronic pain interventions.

  • Injections and nerve blocks to stop the overactive nerves from sending pain messages to the brain
  • Minimally invasive spinal surgery to destroy nerves that are linked to your chronic pain symptoms
  • Spinal cord stimulation that disrupts messages from the nerves to the brain
  • Supplements that are proven to reduce chronic pain
  • Injections that provide lubrication inside joints that have reduced cartilage and may be arthritic
