Our Pain Management Treatments:
Injections of BOTOX for pain management can be very effective in blocking the nerve signals that trigger migraine headaches.
During a diagnostic facet joint block, an anesthetic is injected into the spinal facet joints or near the nerves connected to a facet joint to determine the source of pain.
Synvisc® injections are a viscosupplementation therapy that lubricates the knee joint, thereby facilitating movement and providing relief from osteoarthritis knee pain for up to six months.
Hypogastric plexus refers to the bundle of nerves near the bottom of your spinal cord. This type of block may be used to help relieve chronic pelvic pain associated with endometriosis, irritable bowel syndrome, radiation injury, prostate cancer, cervical cancer, testicular cancer, and colorectal cancer.
When other pain relief methods fail to eliminate or minimize your pain, we may recommend an implantable device that delivers pain-relieving medication directly to the spinal cord.
To relieve the pain from lumbar spinal stenosis, Dr. Le can perform a minimally invasive procedure to remove small pieces of bone and excess ligament tissue from the spinal canal. Doing so decreases nerve compression, minimizes pain, and improves mobility.
For back pain that cannot be relieved through other methods, radiofrequency ablation targets the nerves supplying the facet joint that transmit pain signals.
As a means of diagnosing and treating lower back pain, we can inject steroid medication into the sacroiliac joint, which relieves pain and swelling.
Selective nerve root blocks are injections that help diagnose the cause of nerve root pain the neck, upper back, and low back. They can also serve as an effective pain relief treatment.
An effective treatment for chronic back pain, a spinal cord stimulator is a small device that is surgically placed beneath the skin to block pain signals to the brain.
This type of injection is used to treat inflammation in specific areas of muscle pain (the hip, shoulder, knee, etc.) known as trigger points.
