Pain Management

Don't Let Pain Control Your Life.

Pain has many causes, and that can make treatment difficult. Diagnosing the source of your pain is key to prescribing proper pain relief.

Appointments by Referral

A physician must refer you to us before acceptance into the pain management program. If you have been referred and have not been treated by us before, call our receptionist to schedule your appointment and discuss treatment at (719) 530-2000.

Our Providers

James Leek, M.D.

The HRRMC Pain Management Clinic is directed by interventional pain specialist James Leek, M.D. For more than 20 years, Dr. Leek has specialized in treating pain. Before joining HRRMC's medical staff, he worked at the Advanced Pain Management Clinic in Greenfield, Wisconsin, one of the largest pain management groups in the U.S.

Dr. Leek creates a treatment plan tailored to the needs of each individual. This may include the use of interventional therapy, physical therapy, exercise, massage, relaxation techniques, and medication that addresses all possible factors contributing to a patient’s pain.

Talking About Your Pain

Our staff work as a team with our patients when creating treatment plans. No one knows the extent of your pain better than you, and we encourage open communication so that patients have a chance to give us the full picture of their pain issues.

The following issues may benefit from pain management:

  • Chronic and acute pain
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Back and neck pain
  • Musculoskeletal injuries
  • Joint pain
  • Arthritis

Treatments include:

  • Epidural and joint injections
  • Nerve blocks
  • Botox
  • Radio frequency ablation
  • Nerve stimulation
  • Physical therapy
  • Medication

Treatment for these, and other issues may involve medication, nerve stimulation, exercise, and relaxation techniques. A patient’s mental condition may be worsening their symptoms, so we may provide stress management counseling/techniques when providing treatment.
