More than Pills for Neck and Back Pain

If you experience chronic neck or back pain and you are uncomfortable taking a lot of pills to manage your pain, there may be other solutions that are not as invasive as surgery but are more effective than traditional physical therapy and NSAIDs. We offer a variety of therapies that have proven successful in alleviating neck and back pain and restoring quality of life.

Facet Joint Blocks and RF Joint Ablation

For people who suffer from neck and upper back pain, you may not only be in pain but have limited mobility that impacts your quality of life, your sleep patterns, and your ability to work. There are two facet joints per vertebrae that allow for spinal movement. To alleviate pain in those vertebrae that doesn’t respond to medication or other treatments, we can inject a facet joint block or perform radiofrequency facet joint ablation. FD joint ablation, in which a special needle is used to emit radio waves, disables the nerves, and alleviates pain. RF Joint ablation can give you relief for months or even a year.

Lower Back Pain

When other treatments, like anti-inflammatory medications, antidepressants, physical therapy, muscle relaxants, and more, don’t work, a sacroiliac joint block may be beneficial, especially if you suffer with sciatica or have lower back pain. A sacroiliac joint block injection can give you months of relief. This will improve your mobility, and with that, allow you to improve your quality of life. You may be able to return to work if you were not able to, and you will be able to participate more fully in life’s events.
