Up to 85 percent of Americans will experience some type of back or neck pain during their lives, although most people will improve with little or no treatment. However, if the pain is so intense that it affects your quality of life, our interventional pain management providers can focus on non-surgical and minimally invasive treatments to help. With the help of ancillary and diagnostic interventions, our providers try to pinpoint the source of back, neck or arm/leg pain and customize a treatment plan emphasizing a non-narcotic and non-surgical approach to treatment of these conditions. 

The conditions that the provider specializes in are: 

  • Back and neck pain
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Degenerative disc/disc herniation
