How we can help

Do you have shoulder pain or a stiff neck?
Do you suffer from pain in your hips, legs, or knees?
Does joint pain from arthritis keep you from an active lifestyle?
Does Sciatica nerve pain stop you from doing things you love?

At IPC we offer a variety of services and procedures to help with your chronic pain relief. We understand the importance of being able to get up and go. You have life to live, people to see, and things to do. You don’t have time to let lower back pain, arthritis symptoms, or even a spinal injury keep you from your active lifestyle.

Our highly-qualified team of experts are trained in treating everything from Sciatica nerve pain to lower back pain to vertebroplasty.

For pain management, we offer the following injections to help with hip and back pain, joint pain for knees, shoulders, ankles, and elbows, muscle spasms, and bursas.

What’s the best part about receiving treatment at IPC? Injections and procedures can be done in our Alton and O’Fallon locations at a lower cost than in a big hospital. Dr. Buenger is board-certified and uses only the best in medical equipment. The flexibility of coming to one of our two locations while saving on medical costs is a win-win for each individual we treat. 

Scheduled for a procedure with us?

Make sure to read over these instructions first.

If you are currently taking blood thinning medications, consult with our office to determine if you need to stop your blood thinner prior to your procedure. Some procedures can be safely done with patients still taking their blood thinners.

If you are being treated for an infection with an antibiotic, we will likely postpone your procedure until you complete this medication.

If you are a diabetic and your morning blood sugar is above 200mg/dL, we will postpone your procedure if it involves steroids as this will increase your blood sugar. We will ask you to work with your diabetes physician to optimize blood sugar control prior to doing a steroid related injection.

IPC is here to create pain management solutions customized for YOU!
