Pain Clinic Established

Houlton Family Practice is pleased to announce the addition of a pain clinic to their list of services. The Pain Clinic specializes in pain management for patients suffering from back, neck, joint pain, arthritis, headaches, and sports-related injuries to help reduce pain and help patients experience a better quality of life.  Pain Management can be a complex medical problem that simply writing a prescription can’t always solve.  Pain interventions may require a combination of cutting edge pain treatments to manage chronic pain.  Our patients receive the very latest medical and interventional treatments in one convenient place from a highly skilled, compassionate, coordinated team.  Patients will work closely with our pain management specialist, Matt Cowan, PA-C to customize a pain management care plan that may include:

  • Nerve blocks/ablations
  • Steroid injections for musculoskeletal pain
  • Kyphoplasty
  • Joint injections/ultrasound guided
  • Medication management and Consults
  • Trigger point injections
  • Physical Therapy
