Date: September 10, 2014
Pain Management Group (PMG) has recruited Dr. Heloise Westbrook to provide balanced pain treatment to patients at the Muhlenberg Pain Management Center at Muhlenberg Community Hospital (MCH) in Greenville, Ky.
Dr. Westbrook is board certified in pain management and fellowship trained in pain management and obstetrical anesthesia. She has served as director of pain management and staff anesthesiologist at Avera St. Luke’s Hospital in Aberdeen, South Dakota for the past 13 years.
Muhlenberg Pain Management Center’s balanced pain treatment incorporates the tailored use of physical therapy, interventional procedures and medication management. The program aims to increase patient mobility, returning patients to everyday tasks that were previously inhibited by debilitating pain.
Dr. Westbrook will offers balanced pain management services including the diagnosis and treatment of all kinds of acute and chronic pain conditions including neck pain, back pain, sciatica, persistent pain after back or neck surgery, arthritis pain in neck or lower back, Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS), nerve damage or muscle spasm pain, shingles pain and headaches.
Common interventional procedures include epidural steroid injections, facet joint injections, selective nerve root blocks and radiofrequency ablations. Dr. Westbrook will perform all procedures locally at MCH.
PMG has partnered with Muhlenberg Community Hospital to provide balanced, hospital-based pain treatment to the region since 2013. PMG has partnered with hospitals all over the Midwest to develop high-quality pain management programs in over 30 communities. By offering a physician-directed, multi-modal approach to pain, PMG’s balanced pain management centers combat the impact of so-called “pill mills” and inappropriate pain management practices.
