Non-surgical Treatment - Dr. Jared Greenberg
The good news is that most of these painful spine and musculoskeletal disorders can be managed successfully without surgery.
The spine conditions that are managed include, but are not limited to - bulging discs, degenerative disc disease, herniated discs, spinal stenosis, sciatica, pinched nerves/radiculopathy, sacroiliac (SI) joint dysfunction, facet joint arthrosis, spondylosis, scoliosis, spondylolisthesis, pars fractures and whiplash injuries.
The vast majority of patients experiencing neck and low back pain have a specific and diagnosable source of their pain. If simple measures fail to provide relief, more specialized care is needed for identification and treatment of the pain source. To accomplish this, our experts will perform a complete neuromuscular examination and utilize a variety of tools, including advanced imaging, electrodiagnostic (EMG) evaluation, diagnosis-specific PT/OT exercise programs, modalities, and injection therapy. Injections range from trigger point injections in the treatment of myofascial pain syndrome to more advanced techniques for spinal and peripheral joint injections that utilize ultrasound or fluoroscopic x-ray guidance for added precision.
