Treatment Options

 

Diagnostic and Therapeutic Injection Therapy

Certain pain cycles can be broken with the injection of anesthetic (Bupivicaine) and anti-inflammatory (cortisone) medications. A wide variety of treatment options, featuring the latest technologies and therapies, are available:

  • Discography
  • Epidural Steroid Injection 
  • Facet Joint Injections 
  • Implantable Devices
  • Joint Injections 
  • Radiofrequency Procedures 
  • Nerve Blocks 
  • Sympathetic Nerve Blocks
  • Trigger Point Injections

We explore the relationship between your current medications and possible side effects. We combine a sensitivity to your distress with a need to reduce medication dependence. Adjustments are closely coordinated with your physician, and progress and results are continuously monitored.

 

Implantable Devices

We offer spinal cord stimulators, peripheral nerve field stimulators, and other implantable devices to treat your chronic pain that has been unresponsive to other therapies.
