Our physiatrists work with patients who have upper or lower back pain that has not responded to other conservative treatment methods like physical therapy or medication. Through interventional (non-invasive) procedures, we treat and manage painful symptoms related to a variety of spine and neck conditions, as well as knee pain and hip pain.

Common Conditions

Conditions our physiatrists commonly treat include:

  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Neck and back pain
  • Osteoporosis
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Chronic knee pain
  • Hip pain
  • Pinched nerves
  • Nerve damage
  • Herniated discs
  • Degenerative discs
  • Kyphosis (hunch back)
  • Lordosis (sway back)
  • Spinal compression fractures

Nonsurgical Treatment Options

Our physiatrists take time to accurately pinpoint the source of your ailment and design a treatment plan based on your individual needs. Depending on your diagnosis – which our physiatrists determine through electromyography (EMG), nerve conduction studies, diagnostic imaging and other tests – nonsurgical treatment options that may provide pain relief include:

Interventional Back Pain Relief

Back pain – in particular lower back pain – is a very common orthopedic condition. There are many causes and treatment options depending on your back pain diagnosis. Your spinal cord is part of your central nervous system and plays an important role in day-to-day function. If conservative, non-invasive approaches like physical therapy, braces and exercise haven’t relieved your back pain, surgery may be an option.
