What is Pain Management and
Who Should See a Pain Management Specialist?

Interventional Pain Management is a medical specialty that focuses on evaluating, diagnosing, and treating pain. At Olympia Orthopaedic Associates, our Fellowship Trained and Board Certified Pain Management Specialist, Dr. Douglas W. Taylor, treats patients who are suffering from acute and chronic pain caused by the following orthopaedic injuries and conditions:

  • Arthritis
  • Bone Fractures
  • Cartilage damage
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Herniated discs
  • Strains and sprains
  • Nerve disorders
  • Neuropathic pain
  • Osteoporosis
  • Sciatic pain
  • Spine injuries and conditions
  • Tendonitis

Dr. Taylor also treats patients who have pain caused by non-orthopaedic injuries and conditions or pain that has unknown causes. Because pain is something that is experienced differently by every patient, Dr. Taylor uses customized treatment plans that may include numerous treatment options.

Nonsurgical treatment options include medications, physical therapy, activity modification, and more.

For those who are experiencing chronic pain that has not responded to conservative treatments, Dr. Taylor is also an expert in both injection based treatments and Minimally Invasive Pain Management Procedures.  

These can include:

  • Epidural Injections
  • Transforaminal injections
  • Selective nerve blocks
  • Nerve root blocks
  • Rhizotomy
  • Spinal Cord Stimulation


Should I Make An Appointment?

There is no reason for you to live in pain. Patients who are experiencing any of the following are encouraged to make an appointment with Dr. Taylor:

  • Back or neck pain
  • Dull, aching pain that is always present
  • Joint stiffness
  • Joint tenderness
  • Pain that comes and goes unexpectedly
  • Pain that increases in severity
