What are Some of the Treatment Options?

Spinal Stimulator:

A Spinal Cord Stimulator Implants, referred to as a Spinal Cord Stimulator or Neurostimulation, works by intercepting pain signals before they reach the brain.

Endoscopic Rhizotomy:

An endoscopic rhizotomy is a minimally invasive endoscopic surgery that allows direct visualization of the medial branch nerves that supplies the facet joints in the back of the spine. This procedure may also be called a facet joint denervation

 

Nerve Abalation:

A nerve ablation is also referred to as a Radiofrequency nerve ablation(RFA) or radiofrequency neurotomy(RFN). This safe and effective treatment uses a specialized radiofrequency device to deliver heat along the painful nerve and disrupt nerve conduction on a semi-permanent basis.

Stem Cell Therapy or PRP:

Platelet rich plasma therapy or (PRP therapy) and Stem cell therapy are advanced prolotherapy treatments used to repair injured tissues. They are minimally invasive and offer a natural approach to repairing damaged or weak structures in the body.
