Spinal health is critical for achieving longevity and a greater quality of life. The three main functions of the spine are to; protect the spinal cord, nerve roots, and several of the body’s internal organs. The spine also provides structural support and balance to maintain an upright posture. Additionally, the spine enables flexible motion.

Neuropathies are caused by damaged nerves, which results in pain that can radiate down an arm or leg, numbness, or a tingling sensation. Some causes of neuropathy include trauma or a herniated disc in the spine.

Spinal Injury & Decompression

Your spine is made up of a complex, interconnected series of vertebrae. These bones have discs between them to provide the flexibility that lets you bend and move your back. These discs are normally sealed within an exterior casing. Wear and tear can cause this casing to weaken, making a rupture in the casing more likely. A disc may slip out, which can then irritate the nerves in your spinal cord. Depending on the location of the slipped disc, pain may begin to worsen in you buttocks/upper thigh or in the upper back, near your shoulders. This disc slippage can cause numbness, tingling, or weakness in the area where the nerves have been disrupted by the stress exerted by the herniated disc.

Spinal decompression works by gently pulling the vertebral joints apart, which stimulates a reduction of herniated material away from the affected nerve root. This re-hydrates the disc and relieves the pain you are experiencing.

Procedural-Based Pain Management

These therapeutic therapies can help reduce, manage, and eliminate your pain. Our experts will thoroughly assess your condition and recommend a therapy plan that is personalized to you based on your symptoms.

Facet Injections
Facet joints are small joints located at the back of your spine. Any trauma or injury to the joints can cause them, and the surrounding areas, to become inflamed. This can cause pain that affects your daily life. If this is the case, anti-inflammatory injections may be the best option to relieve pain.

This procedure is simple and requires little recovery time. First, we use an x-ray to locate the facet joints. Then, an anesthetic is applied to the area and the injection is completed. The effects of the injection can be felt a few days after, and relief from pain is long term, spanning months.

Epidural Injections
A herniated disc causes pain through the inflammation of surrounding tissue, affecting nerve roots and ligaments. Epidural injections can help reduce pain and heal the herniated disc or tear that is causing your pain.

The procedure begins by using X-ray equipment to precisely locate the source of your discomfort. Once found, the steroid medication is slowly injected into the body. Patients will experience benefits within a few days up to a few weeks. Every patient is different and steroid medication can last for several months.

Sacroiliac Joint Injections
Sacroiliac (SI) joints are large joints that are at the base of your spine. Over time, these joints can become arthritic, usually due to some type of trauma. Affected joints can cause the pelvis to misalign. Not only can this be painful, but it can decrease your overall quality of life if it remains misaligned. Sometimes, even sitting can increase the sacroiliac joint pain. An SI injection can help manage this type of pain.

The patient lies face down on the procedure table. We numb the focus area with a local anesthetic, and then insert a needle into the target area. We monitor the procedure via fluoroscopy (x-ray equipment and contrast dye). Because this is an injection, it is minimally invasive and there can be some discomfort due to a needle. You may have sedation for this procedure, but many people are fine under just a local anesthetic.

Spinal Cord Stimulators
Pain originates as electrical signals between your brain and the rest of your body through your central nervous system. These signals run up and down your spinal cord. It is when pain signals in the affected area are sent to the brain that you begin to feel hurt.

The spinal cord stimulator is a device that works by ‘masking’ pain signals. It intercepts the pain before it reaches your brain and replaces it with its own electrical signals that the brain receives instead. Patients who undergo this procedure report either zero pain or a tingling sensation where the pain used to be.
