Conditions Treated

  • Arthritis
    • Arthritis is a group of conditions that causes pain and damage to the cartilage in the joints of the body. The most common symptom of arthritis is pain. While certain types of arthritis cause consistent dull pain, others cause pain that is considerably worse in the morning than in the evening. Other common symptoms of arthritis include swelling, stiffness, and loss of movement in the affected joints.
  • Back Pain
    • Lower back pain and sciatica are two of the most common reasons for any patient to visit their doctor. Because of its pivotal role and frequent use, the lower back is susceptible to injury and chronic pain. Lower back pain can be a result of injury to a muscle or ligament, a degenerated or ruptured disc, arthritis of the spine or an irritated nerve.
    • While lower back pain is not usually a serious condition, it can be very painful and debilitating. Talk to your doctor today about how to relieve your lower back pain.
  • Cancer Pain
    • Unfortunately, many forms of advanced cancer are associated with pain and disability. The causes may be related to the cancer pressing on nerves and adjacent structures, or side effects from chemotherapy, radiation and surgery. When it comes to cancer pain we take an aggressive approach to ensure the best quality of life possible for our patients.
  • Central Pain
    • Central pain syndrome is a neurological disorder affecting the central nervous system. This condition affects individuals with brain injuries, strokes, limb amputations, spinal cord injuries, or multiple sclerosis. A burning sensation is the most common symptom of central pain syndrome, although other painful sensations may also be experienced.
  • Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS, RSD)
    • Complex regional pain syndrome involves long-term, intense pain that occurs after an injury and tends to get worse over time instead of getting better. This condition most often affects the arms, legs, hands or feet and can spread to nearby areas as it progresses. In addition to pain, patients may also experience swelling, sweating, skin sensitivity and more.
    • The cause of CRPS is not specifically known, although it is thought to be linked to the sympathetic nervous system and restructuring of the way pain is interpreted by the brain and spinal cord.
  • Failed Back Syndrome (Post- Laminectomy Syndrome)
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Intractable Post Operative Pain
  • Musculoskeletal Pain
  • Neck Pain
  • Neuralgia or Neuropathy
    • Neuropathic pain is a chronic condition caused by damage, dysfunction or injury within the actual nerve fibers, which results in the delivery of incorrect signals to pain centers within the body. This may occur as a result of several different factors, including surgery, chemotherapy, or conditions such as diabetes, HIV, multiple sclerosis and others.
    • Patients with neuropathic pain may experience shooting pain, numbness, tingling and weakness in certain areas of the body. This condition tends to get worse over time rather than better, so finding a successful treatment method is important.
  • Phantom Limb Pain
    • Phantom limb pain is pain that persists in a limb after it has been amputated. While the exact cause of phantom limb pain is unknown, research suggests that it is a result of the brain's inability to adapt to the missing limb.
  • Post Herpetic Neuralgia
  • Radiculopathy
  • Sacroiliac Joint Pain
    • Sacroiliitis is a condition involving inflammation of one or both of the sacroiliac joints, which connect the pelvis and lower spine. This condition may occur as a result of arthritis, pregnancy, traumatic injury, or infection. Symptoms of sacroiliitis may include pain in the lower back, buttocks, groin, legs or feet that can be exacerbated by running, standing for extended periods of time, or stair climbing.
  • Spinal Stenosis
  • Vertebral Compression Fractures
    • Like any other bone in your body, the bones of the spine, called vertebrae, can fracture. These fractures are usually a result of osteoporosis, metastatic diseases, a fall or other type of injury. A spinal fracture is called a vertebral compression fracture and occurs most often in the thoracic or middle spine.
    • Compression fractures can cause mild to severe pain depending on how they occur, and may also result in curving of the spine in some cases. If a fracture is suspected, your doctor may perform an x-ray, CT scan or MRI to evaluate the extent of the injury and determine the most effective treatment approach.
  • Whiplash
  • Others
