What We Specialize InHerniated Discs - A herniated disc is the product of a tear in the outer ring of an intervertebral disc, which is a cartilaginous structure that connects the spinal vertebrae. When a disc is herniated, its exposed center begins to protrude through the outer ring, placing pressure on surrounding nerves.
EMG and Nerve Conduction Studies (NCS) - Electromyography, or EMG, is a technique used to detect nerve abnormalities. This test records electrical activity in the skeletal muscles to diagnose nerve injuries and determine an appropriate course of treatment.
Lumbar Epidural Spinal Injections (LESI) - Epidural steroid injections aim to relieve inflammation and painful symptoms caused by chronic conditions of the vertebral discs. Lumbar injections are used to diagnose and treat chronic pain in the lower back and extremities.
Sacroiliac Joint Pain & Dysfunction - Part of the pelvis, the SI joint connects your sacrum to your ilium and is surrounded by strong ligaments. Sacroiliac joint pain or dysfunction is the result of too much or too little motion occurring at this joint, which can lead to inflammation.
Sciatica - Sciatica is a pain, tingling, or numbness in the lower back, buttocks, and legs. Though not a medical condition in and of itself, it’s a common symptom of other orthopedic disorders.
