Pain Management

Epidural Steroid Injection

An epidural steroid injection treats nerve irritation caused by nearby tissues pressing on the nerve. The inflamed nerve root is bathed in steroids, an anti-inflammation medicine, to decrease the irritation of the nerve root that is causing the pain.

Pain Stimulator Insertion (Spinal Cord Stimulation)

Spinal cord stimulation (SCS) creates an electrical field over the spinal cord, which blocks pain that comes from damage to the nervous system. 

Shockwave Therapy: Elbow and Heel

Shockwave therapy uses strong sound waves to induce “microtrauma” to tissues to relieve heel pain caused by plantar faciitis or elbow pain caused by tendinopathy, also called tennis elbow. The microtrauma initiates a healing response in the body.
