Advanced Spine and Back Pain Treatments
The initial phase of non-surgical treatment of spine disorders typically involves non-invasive treatments including medications, ice and heat, and rehabilitation exercises that are specific to your spinal condition, often directed by our team of certified physical therapists at Rejuvinix. Our expert physical therapists work directly with your physician to improve, restore, or maintain physical strength and function resulting from your spinal condition.
The first step in formulating a treatment plan is to make an accurate diagnosis of the condition causing your symptoms. Our medical staff will perform a thorough evaluation, reviewing your history, physical examination to assess the source of your back pain, and diagnostic imaging studies in detail to prescribe a treatment plan that is personalized for your individual symptoms. Imaging studies often include x-rays that show the bones and allow our physicians to evaluate your overall spinal alignment and look for conditions such as disc degeneration and arthritis. X-rays do not show soft-tissue such as disc herniations or pinched nerves. Diagnosing these conditions requires a special imaging study called an MRI.
When symptoms do not improve with non-invasive treatments, interventional spinal injections may be offered. These may include epidural steroid injections, facet joint injections, and sacroiliac injections. Spinal injections are performed using fluoroscopy (x-ray guidance) to ensure proper placement of the needle so the medication is delivered to the appropriate place. In some cases, spinal injections can provide long-term pain relief and help you avoid the need for surgical treatment.
Interventional spine injections are performed to provide pain relief or diagnostic information by injecting steroid medication and anesthetic into a joint or an area surrounding your spinal nerves. The injections are performed under fluoroscopy (x-ray guidance) to ensure proper placement of the needle so the medication is delivered in the appropriate place. There are several types of spinal injections including epidural steroid injections, facet injections, and sacroiliac (SI) joint injections.
