This is caused by the varicella-zoster virus which is the same virus that causes chickenpox. Acute pain can be burning, shooting and severe. Acute shingles pain must be treated aggressively and immediately. Chronic shingles pain can be difficult to treat. Besides medications and physical therapy, interventional pain specialists can perform epidural steroid injections , and intercostal nerve blocks or radiofrequency ablation of the nerve to help minimize the pain.

Dr. McClure and his staff are amazing! Last Friday, I was looking inside the office and it was closed. A lady saw us looking in and came to the door. The office member, Veronica, answered our questions and even set up an appointment for my husband the following Monday. The service and professionalism was impeccable. Thank you so much!
