BizLook: Align Interventional Pain
People with chronic pain have more treatment choices now than ever before. At Align Interventional Pain, Dr. Morgan Pollard offers innovative, simple procedures to help patients get their lives back.
Safe, Effective Options
“Recovering from surgery is no joke,” says Dr. Pollard, who had shoulder surgery herself as a collegiate golfer. “All the treatments I offer are much easier to recover from.”
Many therapies use electrical impulses to change the way nerves respond to pain. Radiofrequency ablation is a quick, noninvasive procedure that disrupts the nerves’ pain signals. Neuromodulation techniques involve implanting a small device that sends impulses to the nerves. Patients don’t feel the impulses, and the device is easy to remove, if necessary.
Dr. Pollard is also enthusiastic about the promise of regenerative medicine, which harnesses the patient’s own body to generate healing. Most people aren’t familiar with this treatment model, but it’s becoming more widespread. She offers several safe, established therapies based on this model.
Improving Quality of Life
Dr. Pollard grew up in Purcell and graduated from OU School of Medicine. After a fellowship at the Mayo Clinic, she returned to Oklahoma in November 2020. Her brand-new practice accepts most major insurance, including Medicare. She invites patients to give them a call and see what they have to offer.
“Most of my patients have been through a lot—surgery, therapy, medication, and more,” she says. She encourages people not to see pain management as the last step before surgery, but to explore other options much sooner. “The field has changed dramatically in recent years,” she says. “It’s rewarding to see patients have great improvement in function and quality of life.”
