  • Nerve Blockade: They perform ultrasound and fluoroscopically-guided injections to reduce nerve inflammation on a wide variety of peripheral nerves. 
  • Regenerative Injection Treatments (“prolotherapy”): This treatment consist of injecting natural substances in areas where tendons and ligaments are loose resulting in stimulation of tissue growth
  • Vertebroplasty/kyphoplasty: Being a rebuilding process to restore fractured vertebrae due to osteoporosis and/or injury due to a fall. 
  • Spinal Cord Stimulator Implant (SCS): It involves a specialist using a pacemaker-like device that overrides the pain with a more bearable sensation that could feel like tingling or massaging. The device is implanted in the patient’s lower back and is only activated by the patient in the event of pain.
