The excruciating pain of a pinched nerve, together with symptoms like tingling and muscle weakness, may only go away after the nerve is decompressed with a laminectomy. The physicians at Spinetech have years of experience performing laminectomies, safely and effectively helping patients get the symptom relief they need.
WHAT IS INTERVENTIONAL PAIN MANAGEMENT?
Nerves carry a message from wherever pain originates in your body through your spinal cord and to your brain. You only feel the pain after your brain receives and interprets the nerve signals. Interventional pain management specialists use diverse techniques to stop the pain signals from reaching your brain. If your brain doesn’t get the message, you won’t feel the pain.
WHAT TYPES OF INJECTIONS ARE USED DURING INTERVENTIONAL PAIN MANAGEMENT?
WHAT IS SPINAL CORD STIMULATION?
Injections are very effective, but they’re not the only type of interventional treatment. Spinal cord stimulation is another example of the unique therapies available at Spinetech. The doctors use this treatment to alleviate debilitating back pain.
