No, here at Sebring pain management, Dr. Reid does not prescribe narcotic medications. Dr. Reid uses interventional approaches, such as injections, to diagnose and treat painful conditions.

When appropriate, procedures will be performed under sedation. This may cause numbness, weakness and decreased movement in parts of your body that would make it unsafe for you to drive. Recovery time from sedation affects everyone differently and we require you to follow instructions that are provided for your safety.

You may take your daily maintenance medications, such as heart, blood pressure, or thyroid medicines prior to your appointment. However, so Dr. Reid may properly evaluate your pain symptoms; we recommend you do not take your pain medicines prior to your appointment.

When appropriate, procedures will be performed under sedation. Your body’s reflexes are temporarily slowed during sedation. If your stomach has food and drink in it, there’s a risk of vomiting, or aspiration. To prevent nausea and vomiting we require you to not eat or drink 6 hours prior to your appointment. (Only small sips of water are allowed to be taken with your heart or blood pressure medicines the morning of your procedure.)

Intravenous sedation is available for most, but not all procedures. Intravenous conscious sedation will not guarantee that everyone will sleep through their procedure; it is ultimately provided for comfort and relaxing during procedures.

Bandage is placed at injection site immediately after your procedure is completed. This is done to stop bleeding and prevent infection. You may remove your bandage when you get home prior to bathing.

You may return to exercise or your normal activity 24 hours after your procedure or until any discomfort from the injection is gone. Pace yourself in the days to follow.

Yes, it is normal to have soreness or discomfort at the injection site after your procedure. Common symptoms after an injection includes sore, ache, or stiff. Everybody experiences pain differently. To decrease discomfort, apply ice packs 15 minutes every hour, for 24 hours while you’re awake. DO NOT use heat for 2-3 days after your injection. You may take over the counter medicines like Tylenol, Motrin or Aleve for inflammation and pain if needed. Call the office if you experience any of the symptoms listed: fever over 101° F, severe headache, severe nausea and vomiting, discomfort that becomes severe or interferes with normal movement that you have never had before.
