  • Degenerative Disc Disease This condition weakens of one or more vertebral discs which normally act as a cushion between the vertebrae.
  • Facet Joint Injection Inflamed facet joints can often be the cause of neck pain, back pain, and sometimes headaches.
  • Herniated Discs When discs between vertebrae, it can put pressure on the spinal cord or spinal nerves, calling numbness and weakness along the nerve.
  • Neck Pain and Pinching Cervical fractures, herniated discs, pinched nerves, and arthritis could all be causes of neck pain.
  • Pain Management (Interventional) Interventional pain management involves administering a series of therapeutic injections to specific areas of the spine to alleviate pain.
  • Pinched Nerve (Cervical Radiculopathy) Commonly referred to as a “pinched nerve”, cervical radiculopathy refers to damage or irritation of the nerve roots that exit the cervical spine.
  • Radiofrequency Ablation Radiofrequency ablation involves placing probes beneath the skin that apply heat to nerves.
