Whether diagnostic pain procedures are the best option, a non-surgical pain treatment or regenerative medicine, we are confident you are in the right place and we will take great care of you!

Could this be your answer to relieve pain from:

Herniated discs
Disc bulges
Inflamed facet joints
Stenosis
Degenerative Disc Disease
Arthritis

Our Surgeons and Pain Specialists specialize in determining and treating the root cause of pain with Diagnostic Pain Procedures and Nerve Ablations. It’s safe and effective.

A diagnostic pain injection is also referred to as a Medial Nerve Branch Block. In our practice, the first step in treating chronic spine pain is to make an accurate diagnosis, which starts by listening to the patient. Our Pain Specialists will review your medical history, perform a physical examination, and evaluate imaging studies before recommending treatments or performing procedures.

MRI, CT, or other imaging studies in most cases help to make a diagnosis. While the results can provide important information, they do not always explain causes of chronic pain. Many people with abnormalities showing in their imaging studies such as degenerative disc disease, arthritis, stenosis, disc bulges and herniated discs, do not have any pain, some people with normal imaging studies have severe pain. The medical history and physical examination are crucial to help us decide whether what we see on radiology studies is causing pain.

When the diagnosis is not clear, diagnostic injections may be useful. They are also called Medial Nerve Branch Blocks.This safe 15-minute procedure involves placing numbing medication into a part of the spine that appears to be the root cause of pain and observing the effect on your symptoms. If a structure in your back is very tender when we inject it, or if pain subsides after a structure is numbed up, that may be the cause of your pain.
