Restoring Quality of Life: 5 Innovative Approaches Changing Lives

Managing pain and improving mobility can change a person’s quality of life.

Freeing them from not just the physical limitations but also those that impact mental health. Yet, many people don’t realize just how many treatment options are available today. Take a look at five innovative treatment options that we’re performing to heal patients and improve their lives.

#1: Lumbar Sympathetic Blocks

Lumbar Sympathetic Blocks are a type of injection that can work to stop the pain that a person has. It specifically targets sciatic nerve pain, the longest nerve that runs from the lower back down into the legs. It typically causes lower back and leg pain that can be debilitating. Lumbar sympathetic blocks are a type of nerve block that stops the pain and restores mobility.

#2 Epidural Injections

Epidural injections are a procedure designed to reduce neck, back, leg, and arm pain. This type of pain typically occurs as a result of inflammation of the nerves in or near the spine. This can limit movement. Epidural injections include several options that we offer for specific areas, which can help to stop the pain signals, encouraging natural movement again.

#3: Spinal Cord Stimulation

An SCS device is placed under the skin and provides a very mild electrical current to the spinal cord. This very safe procedure helps to stimulate the nerves in those areas. In doing so, it can help to relieve spinal cord pain even some of the most intense pain individuals feel.

#4: Radiofrequency Ablations

In radiofrequency ablations, the goal is not just to turn off the communication with the brain, but also to destroy the nerve fibers that carry those pain signals. This can provide long-term pain relief. It’s highly effective for people who struggle with chronic pain including arthritic joint pain, lower back pain, and unresolved neck pain.

#5: Platelet Rich Plasma

Platelet-rich plasma injections are a form of regenerative medicine. They work to encourage natural healing within problem areas. They work when a concentrated mixture of a person’s platelets are injected into a specific area, encouraging natural but sped-up healing in these areas.

Which of these treatment options can change your life? Though each person’s needs are unique, most people facing chronic pain or acute, debilitating pain can find significant relief available to them.
