Our Pain Expertise

Minimally Invasive Procedures

Modern medicine has led to the availability of many interventional options that do not require open surgery. We are able to offer Minimally Invasive Procedures (MIPs) to our patients as an alternative to surgical and conservative therapy because of our specialised knowledge and expertise in this area.

Painostic Methodology

The Painostic Methodology is Singapore Paincare’s unique formulation when performing pain assessments, diagnosing pain conditions, and reaching a pain treatment roadmap.  It covers the theoretical and practical aspects of pain assessment and differentiates the mechanical and functional aspects of pain transmission.  Site specific pain derives its diagnosis from local pathology as well as referred pain pathways.  It gives an alternative consideration of other mechanisms of pain generators.

What Are Our Proprietary Pain Treatments?


Myospan injections target muscles, ligaments, tendons, joints, and nerves to break the pain cycle, reduce inflammation, and improve healing.

Myospan is used to treat a wide variety of common pain conditions like tension headaches , tennis/golfer elbow, plantar fasciitis, and joint pain as well as pain in the shoulder, knee, ankle, neck and back.

Specialised needles are used to reach the pain source/generator without the need for open surgery or painkillers. Depending on the painful condition, different injections may be utilised to either remove the pain generator or stop the pain signals.

The injections can be given in a doctor’s clinic and usually only take a few minutes. Usually, a single course of treatment is sufficient for sustained pain relief and may be repeated in six months or a year if necessary.

Myospan treatments include Coreflex injections, Platelet-Rich Plasma injections, Intra-Articular Injections, and Botulinum toxin injections.

Neurospan is used to treat pain due to spinal causes. It treats the underlying source of pain such as slipped discs, bone spurs, and nerve compressions.

In cases of herniated discs, specialised needles and injections are used to decompress and shrink the discs using a vacuum effect to achieve the required volume reduction.

Adhesiolysis is used to “free” impinged nerves, thereby releasing scarred, compressed nerves. This also desensitises the irritated nerve, lowers pain sensitivity, and prevents radiculopathy.

Neurospan treatments include Neuroplasty, Nucleoplasty, Radiofrequency Ablation, Pulsed Radio Frequency, Intrathecal Pump Implants, Endoscopic Laser Decompression, Spinal Cord Stimulator, and Epidural Analgesia.

Minimally Invasive Procedures We Perform

Coreflex Injections
Coreflex Injections help to treat a wide variety of common pain conditions. The injections comprise a mixture of local anaesthetic, anti-inflammatory and muscle relaxants to stop muscle spasm and inflammation. Proceed
Platelet-Rich Plasma
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is a type of prolotherapy that treats musculoskeletal conditions by stimulating healing at the injection site with temporary low-grade inflammation, which promotes tissue repair and growth. Proceed
Neuroplasty removes pressure to nerves caused by excessive scar tissues. A tube is inserted to create more space in the narrowed spine, and free up trapped nerves by mechanically breaking down adhesions and administering medicine to decrease swelling. Proceed
Radiofrequency Ablation
Radiofrequency Ablation uses radio frequency energy to heat and burn painful nerves, relieving pain and addressing inflammation within facet joints. Proceed
Intrathecal Pump Implants
Intrathecal Pump Implants uses a small pump surgically placed under your abdomen and a catheter to deliver medication directly to your spinal cord. Proceed
Pulsed Radio Frequency
Pulsed Radiofrequency uses radio frequency energy to disable and desensitise pain-causing nerves, treating pain caused by hypersensitive nerves. Proceed
Spinal Cord Stimulator
Spinal Cord Stimulation uses an implantable stimulator to deliver electrical signals that inhibit pain signals before they reach the brain. Proceed
Myofascial Block
Tense and painful muscle presents itself as muscle knots and spasms. Chronic muscle spasm has a lot of build up of toxin within the injured muscle. Injection of medication such as local anaesthetic, anti-inflammatory and/or botox will wash off the toxin and prevent muscle spasm.
Endoscopic Laser
Endoscopic Laser Decompression treats back pain and nerve impingement associated with slipped discs and bone spurs. A rigid needle port of 1cm diameter is inserted into the spine. There is a camera at the tip of the needle similar to that of gastroscopy and colonoscopy. Under direct vision, bone spur and slipped discs can be lasered/ablated away. Proceed
Peripheral Nerve Block
Nerve blocks are useful both diagnostically and therapeutically. Sometimes, if the pain generator is not obvious, we utilise a nerve block to assess if the pain condition is mechanically or functionally mediated. Therapeutically, it stops the pain signals in the painful nerves, giving relief and respite to the patient. It involves injection of a local anaesthetic and anti-inflammatory around a specific nerve or a bundle of nerves. The medication prevents the nerves’ impulses from reaching the central nervous system (CNS) and making you feel pain.
Intra-articular Injections
Joint degeneration will cause inflammation and pain within the affected joints. Intra-articular injection will remove swelling and effusion. Concurrently, anti-inflammatory and visco-supplement will improve the longevity of the affected joints.
Epidural Analgesia
Epidural Steroid is used to treat spine related pain conditions. The injection is similar to epidural analgesia given during labour of childbirth. Together with steroid and local anaesthesia, given at the correct location and level, it can give short term relief.
Nucleoplasty uses controlled ablation to decompress the herniated disc in the spine to reduce pressure and compression on nerve roots. Proceed
Ketamine Therapy
Ketamine Therapy uses an IV drip to deliver Ketamine, which combats pain by acting against pain-modulating chemical receptors in our nervous system. Proceed
Trigeminal Ganglion
Radiofrequency Ablation
Trigeminal ganglion radiofrequency ablation is the use of radio frequency energy to “burn” and desensitise the trigeminal nerve to reduce pain signals transmitted to the brain, thus relieving pain Proceed

How do our treatments compare with the use of painkillers and traditional pain treatments?

Our minimally invasive pain management techniques bridge the gap between treating pain with open surgery, which may have higher risks and require longer recovery times, and conservative physical therapy, which may not be as quickly effective. While painkillers are helpful to an extent, they also come with a number of adverse effects, especially if used for an extended period of time. Painkillers also do not address the root cause of pain.
