Physical and Occupational Therapy

Sometimes it is appropriate for us to refer you for physical and/ or occupational therapy. In addition to improving muscle strength and flexibility, physical and occupational therapies can offer pain-relieving techniques such as balance and gait training, , deep-tissue massage, acupressure, and heat and cold treatments.

Kyphoplasty

This procedure is utilized to stabilize a vertebral body fracture which is causing severe back pain. This procedure offers the potential to restore bone height in the vertebra and reverse deformity of the spine.

Radio Frequency Nerve Ablation (RFNA)

Reduced pain is achieved with the use of an electrical current which heats up a small area of nerve tissue, thereby selectively destroying nerves that carry pain impulses. RFNA provides longer lasting pain relief than traditional nerve blocks.  Our Coolief technology creates a radiofrequency lesion 8 times larger than the standard radiofrequency.

Joint Injections

Joint injections of the shoulder and hip under ultrasound or fluoroscopy guidance are available.

Synvisc Injections
