At Florida Spine and Pain, your treatment will begin with a comprehensive evaluation.  The focus of this time will be to understand the mechanism of your pain and to identify your individual pain generators.  After the initial consultation, you will be prescribed an individualized treatment plan.  This may include physical therapy, imaging, injection therapy, medications, or referral for surgical evaluation.  We offer several advanced interventional therapies that we use to minimize pain and medication requirements while improving your function.

Epidural Steroid Injection
Placement of potent anti-inflammatory medication near inflamed nerve roots to decrease pain from herniated discs, scar tissue or spinal stenosis.
Medial Branch Block
A diagnostic injection of medication to confirm if the posterior elements of the spine are the pain generators.  These elements include the facet joints, the multifidus muscles, the interspinous muscles and ligaments, and the bone of the posterior spinal canal.
Sacroiliac Joint Injection​
Placement of potent anti-inflammatory medication along the joint the connects the pelvis to the base of the spine.
Radiofrequency Neurotomy
Application of heat to desensitize pain-generating nerves to provide 6-18 months of pain relief at a time.  The pain is often not as severe when it returns.  This procedure can be repeated if necessary.


Spinal Cord Stimulation
Placement of stimulating wires through a needle into the epidural space.  These stimulating wires send 
Spinal Cord Stimulation
Placement of stimulating wires through a needle into the epidural space.  These stimulating wires send a signal to spinal cord that blocks painful signals from reaching the brain.  The procedure is first done as a trial and, if effective, a permanent implantation follows.
An image-guided injection of a bone polymer through a needle to restore height and stabilize fractured vertebral bodies.  This is done under local anesthesia (numbing medicine) and on an outpatient basis.
Ultrasound-Guided Peripheral Nerve Blocks
Placement of local anesthetic along painful or entraped nerves using live ultrasound guidance for real-time visualization.  Common nerves include the occipital nerves, lateral femoral cutaneous nerves, transverse abdominis plane.
Medication Optimization
Using our expertise in pharmacology, we will tailor medications to optimize pain relief while minimizing side effects.
