PAIN MANAGEMENT PROCEDURES

Pain management and non-surgical spine care:

  • Back issues
  • Neck issues
  • Thoracic issues
  • Motor vehicle accidents
  • Work injuries
  • Athletic spine injuries
  • Failed back syndrome
  • Sacroiliac joint issues
  • Piriformis syndrome
  • Vertebral compression fractures
  • Mechanical back issues
  • Sciatica
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Nerve injury
  • Occipital headaches
  • Pinched nerve (nerve injury due to herniated disc or spinal stenosis)
  • Piriformis syndrome
  • Myofascial pain
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome

Treatments offered

  • Spinal injections (selective nerve root blocks: diagnostic and therapeutic, transforaminal injections)
  • Radiofrequency rhizotomy
  • Percutaneous disc decompression (treatment for disc herniation without surgery)
  • Lumbar discogram
  • Sacroiliac joint injections and for long term relief sacroiliac joint nerve ablation
  • Piriformis injections
  • Occipital nerve ablation
  • Peripheral nerve stimulation for chronic axial back pain
  • Dorsal column stimulator ( spinal cord stimulator) for patient who have failed back  surgery or not a candidate for surgery
  • Trigger point injections
  • Joint injections
  • Hip joint injections
  • Spinal Cord Stimulator Implant
  • Peripheral Nerve Stimulator Implant

Diagnostic procedures offered

  • Electromyograpy (EMG)
  • Diagnostic selective nerve block
  • Diagnostic facet joint injections

Statistics show that 80% of population will suffer from back pain in their lifetime and 80% will resolve with conservative management including physical therapy, self exercise, oral antiinflammatories and possible spinal injections.
