Treatments and Procedures

 

Important

We are not using methylprednisolone in our practice.  We do not buy the medications from compounding Pharmacy.  We buy medications directly from the manufacturers.  We are using Kenalog (Triamcinolone ) in our practice, which we buy from Bristor-Myers Company.  At present we (our patients) do not have any risk from epidural Steroid injections.  Remember safety is our number one priority.

Conservative Management

  • Aerobic exercises, massage, stretching
  • Behavioral Modification (psychological evaluation to include pain coping skills, biofeedback, hypnosis, relaxation techniques
  • Coadjuvant pain medications including NSAID’s, muscle relaxants, and nerve pain medications, with carefully selected dosages
  • Non-surgical spinal decompression
  • Physical and Occupational  Therapy
  • Use of treatment modalities including TENS/Ultrasound hot/cold packs therapy
