Services and Treatments
For many people, it can be difficult to remember the last time they had a thorough pain examination. It is important for your health that you schedule an appointment with us if you are experiencing any discomfort or pain in order to get treatment and relief.
It can be the difference between simply needing physical therapy to requiring invasive surgery.
We Analyze Your Issues
We will examine your joints, muscles, spine, and any other areas where you might typically experience back or neck pain. If necessary, x-rays may also be taken in order to help identify potential issues like arthritis or disc herniation.
Once the issue has been identified through testing and evaluation of symptoms, therapy treatments can be prescribed to provide relief for chronic pains while restoring mobility and function.
Lumbar and Cervical Epidural
What is the difference between an epidural and a lumbar or cervical injection? Epidurals are typically given to patients who have chronic pain that does not respond well to other treatments.
Understanding Lumbar Injections
Lumbar injections are given in the lower back, while cervical injections are given just below the skull near your neck. These injections can be used for many conditions, including radiculopathy (pain caused by irritation of nerve roots), disc herniation, spinal stenosis, sciatica (nerve pain from compression on the sciatic nerve) among others.
How These Injections Work
The goal of these injections is to reduce inflammation and swelling around your nerves so you feel less pain. Cervical epidurals are often used for headaches as they work with the muscles.
Radiofrequency Facet Ablation
Radiofrequency Facet Ablation is a procedure to relieve pain and improve movement in the neck by destroying nerve tissue that may be causing symptoms.
Understanding The Procedure
It is a technique for treating chronic neck pain caused by facet arthropathy (arthritis). It is performed under local anesthesia in an outpatient surgery center or hospital operating room.
How Does It Work?
The procedure involves inserting needles through the skin into the painful areas of bone near where nerves exit to try to destroy them with heat from radio waves. A long-lasting improvement in symptoms usually occurs within three months after treatment.
Spinal Cord Stimulation
Did you know that spinal cord stimulation is a procedure in which an electrode is placed near the spine to provide relief from chronic pain? It is a form of treatment for chronic pain that works by sending electrical pulses through the spinal cord in order to block pain signals from being processed.
The history Of The Treatment
Spinal cord stimulation relieves pain by blocking the transmission of certain nerve signals. This treatment has been used for decades, and many people who have tried it say they found it to be very effective.
Is This Treatment Right For you?
If you are experiencing significant back or neck pain, talk with us about whether this might be right for you! If other therapies haven’t worked for you then this may be worth exploring. You deserve to feel better!
Stem Cell Injection
Stem cell injection for pain is a new treatment that has been shown to provide relief from chronic pain. The procedure involves harvesting stem cells from the patient’s own bone marrow, extracting them into a fluid and then injecting them back into the body in areas where there are injuries or conditions such as arthritis.
Studies On Stem Cell Injections
A study which was published in the Journal of Pain Research, examined the effectiveness of injecting adipose-derived mesenchymal stem cells (ADMSCs) to treat chronic pain.
Researchers injected ADMSC into patients with chronic lower back pain and found that it significantly reduced their levels of both physical and mental discomfort. Patients also experienced less need for narcotic medication to manage their symptoms.
Exploring Your Options
While this is not a cure-all option, it may be something worth considering if you’re living with chronic pain that doesn’t respond well to other treatments or medications.
Trigger Point Injections
Trigger Point Injections are a common treatment for those who suffer from chronic pain. They work by releasing the tight bands of muscle that cause your muscles to spasm and be painful. This is done with injections directly into the trigger point.
What are Trigger Points?
Trigger Points can be found in many areas of your body, but most commonly affect muscles that control movement or postural alignment.
Is This Option Right For you?
It can be an effective way to provide temporary relief, but may not always be a long-term solution. We can determine whether or not this is right for you after examining your symptoms and discussing potential risks and benefits of this type of treatment.
