Anesthesia & Pain

In our clinic, we centralize our pain treatments around drug therapy, physical therapy, psychotherapy as well as herbal therapy or possibly special injections for severe pain with the aim to improve blood circulation and the body’s natural ability to heal.

Special pain examinations (by appointment only)

Special pain examinations are held by an anesthesiologist and it is only available by reservation. For those who are disturbed by pain in their daily lives, we provide consultations and possibly drug therapy, hyperthermia, injection therapy, and etc depending on the particular area of pain.
Those who have chronic pain require continuous treatment. Details are thoroughly discussed during appointments are by reservations only so please book ahead of time. If you received a CT, MRI, or X-ray examination at another hospital, please bring the photos with you if possible for a better pain assessment. If you are taking any oral medication prescribed by another clinic or hospital, please bring those prescriptions along during your clinical examination.

Cooperation with an Orthopedic Clinic

There are various reasons that cause pain and we will consider various treatment methods. Our clinic coordinates with an orthopedic specialist that can provide diagnostic imaging for a more specialized treatment.

Hyperthermia treatment

Hyperthermia treatment
Hyperthermia treatment

Hyperthermia is treated using xenon light-generating equipment in our clinic. The Xenon light we use is mainly a woven wavelength of excellent near-infrared that deeply warms our body tissue to promote blood circulation. It loosens muscle stiffness with an interference wave massage effect. We recommend 2 to 3 treatments per week at the beginning. 1 treatment takes approximately 10 minutes. We use pain-blocking injections when needed if there is any unbearable involved in our treatments (nerve block therapy).

Nerve block therapy

We can alleviate pain by injecting local anesthetics to nerve conduction pathways. If pain continues for a long time, a lot of excessive tension is exerted on sensory nerves such as the motor nerves. The body's blood circulation becomes poorer and causes muscles to tense up, which results in more pain and thus falling into a vicious cycle of pain.
Nerve blocking stops this vicious cycle and improves the blood flow within the damaged area. It normally lasts for approximately an hour, though blood flow improves by then and thus pain is reduced afterwards and symptoms improve. There are different therapeutic effects depending on the individual. Since it is difficult to remove all of the pain with one treatment, we recommend repeated treatments for better results.


1. Stellate Ganglion Block

Stellate Ganglion Block This is an injection of local anesthetics in the sympathetic nerve tissue within the neck. It temporarily loosens the sympathetic nerves, which increases self-healing, improves blood circulation in the dominant region of the sympathetic nerve and helps recover various organs with reduced functionality. It also helps balance autonomic nervous hormone secretion, improves immunity (resistance), and useful for a variety of symptoms and illnesses.

Targeted diseases:

Cervical disease, post-herpetic neuralgia, trigeminal neuralgia, etc.

2. epidural block

epidural block It is injection of local anesthetics in a place called the epidural space in the epidural lumbar vertebrae (spine) to temporarily relieve pain. It also increases the self-healing power to improve the lumbar region’s blood circulation and lower extremities. Injection takes places just on the outermost membrane that envelops the nerve (dura mater) as the needle is not inserted into the nerve for a pain free injection.

Targeted diseases:

Herniated disc, intervertebral stenosis, post-herpetic neuralgia, etc.

3. suprascapular nerve block

suprascapular nerve block This injection is injected at the usual injection location at the suprascapular nerve in the shoulder. The Head of the humerus that is attached to the shoulder bone has a tendon connecting them. In order to relieve pain in the shoulder joint and its surrounding area, local anesthetics is injected around the scapular nerves governing this tendon, which would improve shoulder movement.

Targeted diseases:

Cervicobrachial Syndrome, Shoulder periarthritis, frozen shoulder, etc.

4. trigger block (Lumbar sympathetic block)

trigger block (Lumbar sympathetic block) Trigger blocks pain in areas under pressure and these locations are referred as “trigger points”. We inject local anesthetics in these locations to temporarily relieve pain.

Targeted diseases:

Low back pain, stiff neck, and adapt to the pain in general, such as post-herpetic neuralgia
