We are unlike any other pain practice in this area. We are small, comfortable, personal and close to home.
At Advanced Pain Intervention, we use the most advanced pain management techniques. 100% of our procedures are done under fluoroscopic guidance. We also use the smallest gauge needles possible to minimize discomfort and maximize precision of placement during injection.
We accept specific plans from the following insurance providers. If you do not see your insurance provider on this list, please give us a call. Unfortunately, we do not accept the Illinois Medical Card, Medicaid, or IPA as a primary insurance.
*Please call your insurance to ensure we are covered under your specific plan*

You will first call us and make an appointment. One of our schedulers will work with you and find an appointment time that works for you. The scheduler will also advise you on what information you will need to bring to your appointment.
You will walk in the front door of our building and let someone at the front desk know you are here for Dr. Rosche. They may ask you for your insurance information and to fill out some paperwork before your appointment. When a room is available, one of our nurses will bring you back, go over your information with you, and record your vitals.
You and Dr. Rosche will discuss you’re medical history and the issues you are currently having. You will decide on a treatment plan together, which may consist of an injective procedure, physical therapy, or medication. After your treatment has been carried out, you may need a follow up visit to address further issues you are having or to evaluate your treatment’s effectiveness.
If injective care is the selected treament or fluoroscopic evaluation is needed, our nurse will bring you back to our procedure room, prepare you for the procedure, and make sure you are comfortable. Dr. Rosche will then use our C-arm fluoroscope to provide pinpoint accurate guidance throughout the process. Once he is finished, our nurse will return you to your room to rest momentarily, ask you some parting questions, retake your vitals, then discharge you from the clinic.
Please have your primary physician and any other specialists you visit fax us your medical records. We are a fully private practice and are not affiliated with any other practices, and therefore keep our own independent medical records.
Below is a link to our referral form. While your insurance may not require a referral, having your doctors fill out this form will make forwarding medical records to us easier.
We always recommend to plan for at least 2 hours from start to finish when seeing a specialist.
Most people feel some pressure but no major pain. We use a very small needle and numb the area prior to injection.
You can resume normal activity after an injection. We would suggest that if an activity causes increased pain then stop.
Many patients feel immediate relief, but it can take up to 3 to 7 days to fully kick in. You can ice or lightly massage the area if it is sore, but we do NOT recommend using heat.
Medicine has come a long way. Every doctor has different techniques and skill. We also use a fluoroscopy machine to pin-point the exact location and can see the medicine flowing.
