Peripheral Nerve Blocks are a type of regional anesthesia which is injected near a specific bundle of nerves to reduce pain in a specific area for 12-36 hours.

Joint Injections are non-surgical procedures that use a combination of anesthetic and corticosteroid to improve range of motion and joint relief through a direct injection into the damaged joint.

Similar to other nerve blocks, medial nerve blocks utilize a regional anesthesia to block pains signals generated in the facet joints of the spine from radiating out through the medial branch nerves which feed out from the facet joints and carry the signals to the brain.

Ganglion Impar (Coccyx) Block is used to reduce nerve sensation generating pain signals from the pelvic or rectal area.

Physical Therapy is a branch of care used to help patients regain functional ability and mobility, recover from injury, and reduce pain through physical conditioning.

Pain Pump is a delivery system for medication that utilizes a small pump surgically inserted into the abdomen to deliver medication directly to the spinal cord via catheter.

Occipital Nerve Block is used to treat headaches, and pain in the neck or back of the head by injecting a local anesthetic, Lidocaine or bupivacaine, and Dexamethasone, a steroid to reduce inflammation and pain.

Platelet Rich Plasma therapy uses a patient’s own platelets to create concentrated injections used to accelerate healing time for connective tissue, muscles, and joints.

Platelet Rich Plasma therapy uses a patient’s own platelets to create concentrated injections used to accelerate healing time for connective tissue, muscles, and joints.

Spinal Cord Stimulator is a device placed under the skin to send electrical current directly to the nerves of the spinal cord to block the pain signals from be transmitted to the brain.

Sacroiliac Joint Injections are a mixture of local anesthetic and a steroid that is injected directly into the sacroiliac joint that may help reduce pain for several weeks or months.

A Sympathetic Block is an injection of local anesthetic around the sympathetic nerves located on either side of the spine in the lower back.
