Medical Treatment Options

If your back, neck or spine condition is new, you have not seen a specialist yet or other treatment options have not worked, medical treatments such as physical therapy or medication plans could be all that you need for management. Patients seeking medical options or injection procedures come to the Back and Pain Center staffed by anesthesiologists specializing in pain management or The Spine Program made up of physiatrists.

Many patients come to these programs that have:

  • Acute back pain
  • Chronic disability management issues
  • Disc disease
  • Facet Syndrome
  • Failed back surgery
  • Sciatica
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Vertebral body compression fractures

Treatment options include:

  • Diagnostic studies
  • Education and vocational rehabilitation
  • Electromyography
  • Functional restoration program
  • Injections
  • Manual medicine
  • Occupational therapy
  • Pain medication management and detoxification
  • Physical therapy
  • Psychology

Although both areas treat many of the same conditions there are some different treatment options in each - your physician will refer you to the program that best fits your needs.  However, if you are seeking other treatment options or a second opinion please contact us.
