Innovative Treatment Options

Crystal Clinic Pain Management provides a professional alternative to managing pain with comprehensive services that include physical therapy, medication management and innovative, minimally invasive treatments such as:

Epidural steroid injections,

to reduce inflammation and treat back pain that radiates to other parts of the body, such as the legs or buttocks.

Facet joint injections,

to diagnose and treat arthritis or other degenerative conditions by delivering medication to the spine through specific joints in the body.

Selective nerve root blocks,

to diagnose and treat an inflamed spinal nerve by reducing inflammation and numbing nerve pain.

Radiofrequency ablation,

which uses the heat from radio waves to decrease pain signals from the lower back and neck, as well as joints that have degenerated from arthritis.

Spinal cord stimulation,

using a device that is surgically implanted through very small incisions to deliver mild electric currents that interrupt pain signals in the spine.

Peripheral nerve stimulation,

which also uses small incisions to implant a small device that delivers electrical impulses to relieve pain in specific nerves.

Minimally invasive treatments for spinal stenosis,

to relieve pressure on the spinal cord or nerves due to narrowing of the spine.
