Check out the pain clinic. A lot of them want you to do things though that you may have already tried - epidurals, PT, whirlpool, etc. My husband was discouraged because of this (why repeat things when they don't work the first few times?) and because some suggested more surgery (most pain docs are not surgeons, they'll refer you to one) and suggested more holistic treatments/herbal treatments vs. pain meds. Everyone responds differently - so try it - you have nothing to lose. Be careful with your insurance co though. We've been through 3 and each one has given us a hard time about "pain management." We've had to fight.
