The scope of Non-Surgical Spine and Joint Pain Relief within our practice is in the diagnosis and non-operative treatment of acute and chronic pain of musculoskeletal and neurologic origins.
Based on a report from The American Academy of Pain Medicine, pain affects more Americans than diabetes, heart disease and cancer combined. Recent Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) data suggest substantial rates of pain typically come from various causes and multiple sites of pain.
For U.S. adults reporting pain, causes include: severe headache or migraine (16.1%), low back pain (28.1%), neck pain (15.1%), knee pain (19.5%), shoulder pain (9.0%), finger pain (7.6%), and hip pain (7.1%).
Alternatives to Debilitating Pain
People with chronic pain from conditions like osteoarthritis, tennis elbow, and herniated discs often suffer with higher rates of depression, anxiety, sleep disturbances, and neurotic behavior. Long term pain contributes to decreased physical activity often resulting in weight gain…which leads to other health issues. The treatment of chronic pain frequently requires the coordinated efforts of a team of pain medicine experts.
Whether you have hip pain, shoulder pain, muscle spasms, or another type of discomfort, let our team of non-surgical spine and joint pain relief experts review your MRI and provide a second opinion to set your mind at ease.
