Treatment Options

Our double board-certified physicians are experienced in many interventional pain management procedures and will develop an individualized treatment plan specific to your needs.

Epidural Steroid Injection

An epidural steroid injection treats nerve irritation caused by nearby tissues pressing on the nerve. The inflamed nerve root is bathed in steroids, an anti-inflammation medicine, to decrease the irritation of the nerve root that is causing the pain.

Facet Joint Injections

Administered both for a therapeutic and diagnostic purpose, and can, as with the epidural steroid injections, be targeted to the cervical, thoracic or lumbar areas

Radiofrequency Ablation

Radiofrequency (rhizotomy) ablation is a proven, safe procedure which aims to interrupt pain signals that are transmitted via the medial branch nerves (see “medial branch block” above). 

Sacroiliac Joint Injection

An injection of an anesthetic with a long lasting steroid mixture into the sacroiliac joints, which are located in the back where the lumbosacral spine joins the pelvis.

Botox for Chronic Migraines

Boxtox (Onabotulinumtoxi-A), although most commonly known for its cosmetic applications, is an effective injection therapy for chronic migraines.

Selective Nerve Blocks (SNRB)

A selective nerve block (SNRB) is the injection of a local anesthetic along a specific nerve root. This procedure is used primarily to diagnose nerve root compression. SNRB injections are isolated to various locations along the spine to determine which nerve root is causing the pain

Spinal Cord Stimulation Trial

Spinal cord stimulation is a therapy that uses a small device to interfere with pain signals before they reach the brain. This pacemaker-like device—the spinal cord simulator or SCS—is implanted in the body and sends electrical pulses to the spinal cord.
