Our experienced, credentialed pain-care practitioners pursue your relief with determined focus on your individual needs, using leading-edge methods that will be effective at helping you get back to your life… without delay!
Back and Neck Pain
Spine pain is among the most common medical complaints… and a significant cause of lost productivity and diminished quality of life. We offer several options for diagnosing your problem and helping you get relief.
Caused by the compression of nerve roots in the lower back, sciatica is pain that affects the back, hip and outer side of the leg. With proven therapies and the most advanced interventional procedures, we know how to reduce or even eliminate the pain.
Herniated or bulging discs
The discs between the spinal vertebrae can become weak and bulge out (herniate), pushing against the spinal cord or nerve roots, causing significant pain. Today, we have a number of treatment options for reducing this pain without surgery, helping you feel better and live a more normal, fulfilling life.
Spinal stenosis is when the cavities that house large nerve structures (i.e., the spinal cord or its nerve roots) become narrow, putting pressure on nerves and causing pain that’s often debilitating. Spinal stenosis can be caused by a number of different problems that can create bone spurs and cysts or otherwise narrow passages for critical nerves. Our leading-edge spine interventions and therapies can often reduce or even eliminate this pain.
Failed back/neck surgery
Back surgery is often the right choice to relieve spine-related pain. But sometimes it’s not the right choice. And even when it is appropriate, back surgeries can and do “fail,” frequently through no fault of the surgeon. We offer a number of nonsurgical treatments that can provide relief for certain pain and symptoms that recur (or newly develop) following back or neck surgery.
According to the American Chiropractic Association, one of the most common causes of neck pain is whiplash resulting from a car accident. A sudden forced movement of the head or neck in any direction and the resulting “rebound” in the opposite direction is known as whiplash. The sudden “whipping” motion injures the surrounding and supporting tissues of the neck and head. Muscles react by tightening and contracting, creating muscle fatigue, which can result in pain and stiffness. Severe whiplash can also be associated with injury to the intervertebral joints, discs, ligaments, muscles, and nerve roots.
We offer complete treatment options, including therapies and interventions that can relieve pain associated with the hip, knee, shoulder, elbow and other joints as well as other parts of the musculoskeletal system.
Arm & leg pain
As with sciatica, compression of nerve roots can cause other forms of pain in the legs not directly related to the sciatic nerve. Arm pain can also be related to nerve compression occurring in the spine. We have a number of treatments that can relieve the effects of this compression.
While they can be difficult to diagnose because of their many potential causes, headaches and migraines are common. They can also be devastating to your quality of life. We diagnose headaches accurately and treat them carefully so you can feel — and live — better!
Myofascial pain is chronic pain affecting the connective tissue that covers the muscles. Pressure on specific “trigger points” in the muscles causes pain in other parts of the body, which is called “referred pain.” We use the latest therapies, particularly trigger-point injections, to alleviate the pain.
Complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS)
CRPS is an often elusive and challenging pain condition related to erroneous pain signals from the sympathetic nervous system that create regional pain. We understand CRPS, how to diagnose it and how to use our complete range of treatments to minimize the pain and restore your quality of life.
Neuropathy is a medical condition caused by damaged nerve cells and often associated with autoimmune diseases, infections, diabetes, chemotherapy, or hereditary conditions. Peripheral neuropathy currently affects over 20 million people in the United States with symptoms ranging from tingling or burning pain to muscle spasms, difficulty moving your arms or legs, or atrophy.
Degenerative Disc Disease
The intervertebral discs can begin to degenerate, often (but not exclusively) due to aging. For many, this can cause radiating pain as well as other symptoms, like tingling, numbness or weakness. Interventional techniques and other therapies are how we’re able to provide relief from this disorder.
