Treatments

  • Epidural Steroid Injection: An epidural steroid injection is a non-surgical procedure that treats pain. It is performed under X-ray or fluoroscopic guidance to insure safe and accurate placement of the needle and medication. The condition usually treated with this procedure include neck pain, back pain, sciatica, and other conditions that irritate the nerves such as herniated disc and spinal stenosis. An interlaminar, transforaminal, or caudal approach may be used depending on the source and presentation of pain.
  • Radiofrequency Neurotomy: Radiofrequency neurotomy is a non-surgical procedure that treats chronic back pain. It is performed under X-ray guidance and uses an electrical stimulus and heat to lesion the nerves that are causing pain. The conditions usually treated with this procedure include chronic back pain, and degenerative spine disorders, more specifically facet joint pain. The facet joints are the joints in the back that can become inflamed and irritated.
  • Facet joint injections: Facet joint injections are non-surgical procedures for facet joint pain. The facet joints are the joints in the spine that can become inflamed and irritated. This procedure is performed under X-ray or fluoroscopic guidance in order to accurately place the medication in the joint.
  • Discography: Discography is a non-surgical diagnostic procedure. This procedure is done under X-ray guidance to diagnose discogenic pain. It is used to determine further treatment and appropriate referral for spinal surgery.
  • Sacroiliac joint injections: Sacroiliac joint injection is a non-surgical procedure for back pain originating from the sacroiliac joint. The Sacroiliac joint connects the low back to the pelvis or hip bones. Like other joints in the body this can become inflamed and irritated. X-ray or fluoroscopic guidance is needed to insure proper needle and medication placement.
  • Bursa injection: A bursa is a sac of fluid that allows for the smooth movement of muscles and tendons. Bursae are found throughout the body. The most common areas where a bursa may become irritated include the shoulder and hip causing painful movement of these joints. An injection of medication into these areas will alleviate pain.
  • Joint injections: There are several joints in the body that can become inflamed. More specifically the shoulder, hip and knee joint are common areas of inflammation and degeneration. Injection of medication ranging from cortisone to viscosupplements (Synvisc, Hyaluronan, Hyalgan, Hyaluronic Acid) are offered. Hip and shoulder joint injections may require X-ray or fluoroscopic guidance.
  • Trigger point injections: Trigger points are discrete, focal, hyperirritable spots located in a taut band of skeletal muscle. They produce pain locally and in a referred pattern. Treatment for trigger points involve the injection of medication directly into the area.
  • Osteopathic manipulation: Osteopathic manipulation originates from osteopathic concepts that focus on the holistic treatment of the body. Manipulation can be used to treat back pain and neck pain. It has also been proven to be useful in pregnant females with back pain who have limited treatment options.
