Here are some of the nonsurgical treatment options we offer,
This electrical treatment has the ability to change or even halt pain signals being sent from the nerves to the brain. Electrical stimulation changes how the brain perceives pain and can provide a very effective way to manage chronic back, neck, arm, or leg pain.
Medication is administered into the spinal fluid, providing a direct route to the main source of the pain rather than delivering the medication systemically. By directly targeting the pain nerves with medication, we can better manage your symptoms quickly and effectively. This is an ideal option for patients dealing with cancer-related pain.
Minimally Invasive Lumbar Decompression
Pain can also be caused by nerve decompression. When this happens lumbar decompression techniques can stretch out and apply the appropriate pressure to these areas of the body to release the decompressed nerve to reduce pain and inflammation. This is a great treatment option for those dealing with spinal stenosis, as well as lower back and leg pain.
Superion Indirect Decompression Technique
Another way to treat spinal stenosis and back and leg pain caused by lumbar decompression is through the superion indirect decompression system. An implant is placed in the back, allowing patients to be able to stand without dealing with painful pinched nerves.
Vertebroplasty & Kyphoplasty
Designed to treat painful vertebral compression fractures, these two techniques involve injecting special cement into the fractured spinal vertebrae to help stabilize the spine.
