BACK PAIN

We treat the following conditions causing back pain…

Lumbar Spinal Stenosis

narrowing of spinal canal that may cause various neurologic deficits including pain, numbness, paresthesia and motor weakness.

Spondylolisthesis

slippage of one vertebrae in the spine away from the adjacent level. Conservative treatments including medications and epidurals are offered.

Herniated Disc

occurs when a tear in the disc results in the contents of the disc bulge out past its usual anatomic boundaries into surrounding areas.

Radiculopathy / Sciatica/radicular pain

is pain that runs down the side or back of the leg resulting from pressure along the nerve root usually caused by a herniated disc.

Whiplash Injuries

occurs due to sudden acceleration and deceleration forces applied to the neck that causes tearing of the ligaments and tendons in the spine.

Facet Arthropathy/Facet Arthritis

results from the contact between adjacent level vertebrae. The facet joints allow the spine to move. Over time arthritis can develop at these joints in the back.

Cervical Facet Arthropathy

Cervical Degenerative Disease

Cervical Radiculopathy

Cervical Sprain/Strain

SI Joint Dysfunction

results from arthritis in the joint between the sacrum and the iliac.It can be caused by several things including use over a lifetime and trauma. It is one of the most common causes of lower back pain.

FBSS (Fail Back Surgery Syndrome) / Post Laminectomy Syndrome

continuing pain after back surgery.

Piriformis Syndrome

resembles the pain of sciatica. It occurs when the piriformis muscles which connect from the sacrum to the femur in the hip squeeze the sciatic nerve.

Thoracic Radiculopathy

Thoracic Sprain/Strain

Occipital Neuralgia

NECK PAIN

We treat the following conditions causing Neck pain…

  • Cervical Degenerative Disease – occurs from wearing down of the discs in the neck from daily activity due to loss of water in the inner annulus of the disc causing the disc to collapse.
  • Cervical Radiculopathy – pain that shoots down the arm which is also known as “pinched nerve.” It occurs due to a herniated disc impinging on cervical nerve root exiting the spinal cord.
  • Cervical Facet Disease – this may present with worsening pain with turning of the neck. This can be treated with injection.
  • Cervical Facet Arthropathy
  • Cervical Degenerative Disease
  • Cervical Radiculopathy
  • Cervical Sprain/Strain
  • Cervical Stenosis
  • Occipital Neuralgia
  • Trapezius Sprain/Strain

HEAD AND FACE PAIN

We treat the following Head and Face pain conditions…

Home

Headache – there are many different types of headaches that can be managed with a combination of medications and interventional procedures.

Chronic Migraine – are recurrent headaches are pulsatile in nature that occur over 15 days a month.

Facial Pain (Trigeminal Neuralgia) – are one-sided headache that produce sudden, brief piercing pain that can be triggered by a touch to the face.

Cluster Headaches – are severe burning headaches around the eye that can sometimes be accompanied by autonomic or sympathetic signs including ocular symptoms, nasal congestion, and watering of the
eye that can occur up to several days for several weeks to several months. This type of headache can be treated with medication and interventional procedures.

Occipital Neuralgia – is a chronic headache located in the back of the head up to the back of the ears and the eyebrow.
