Epidural Nerve Blocks

Epidural steroid injections (ESIs) are used to treat various forms of low back pain and leg pain.  An epidural delivers pain relief to the lower part of your body while allowing you to remain fully conscious. Frequently the injection is sufficient to provide relief, but commonly an epidural steroid injection is used in combination with a comprehensive rehabilitation program to provide additional benefits.

Radio Frequency

Radio Frequency Lesioning is a pain relief method that uses heat to interrupt nerve pathways conducting noxious stimuli and can be very effective to patients with certain types of low back or neck pain. The procedure disrupts nerve conduction of pain signals, and can, in turn reduce pain and other related symptoms.

Spinal Cord Stimulators

A spinal cord stimulator (SCS) device is surgically placed under your skin and sends a mild electric current to your spinal cord.  This is a type of therapy that can mask pain signals before they reach the brain. By implanting a small device, similar to a pacemaker, in the body, electrical pulses to the spinal cord can help with pain relief.

Regenerative Treatment

Regenerative medicine may include several different types of treatments to help reduce and eliminate pain by supplementing or stimulating the body’s natural healing processes. Treatments here may include prolotherapy, platelet-rich plasma, and stem cell therapies.

Telemedicine

Telemedicine represents the next wave of patient care. Here, we will be able to remotely diagnose and treat our patients by means of telecommunications technology such as Apple FaceTime, Skype and Google Hangout.  While not available yet, at PMCLI we remain committed to bring state of the art treatment procedures and technologies to our patients.

Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a part of Chinese medicine that also includes the use of Chinese herbs, massage, dietary therapy, and exercise. Medical acupuncture involves inserting very fine needles into specific areas of the body and applying heat or electrical stimulation to those areas. This stimulates the nervous system to release natural chemicals in the body, which in turn, promotes relaxation and relief from pain.

Cupping

At PMC we use Cupping, an ancient form of alternative medicine, to help reduce pain and other aliments. Here, a therapist puts special cups on your skin for a few minutes to create suction. There are two main types of cupping therapy, wet and dry. Cupping is non-invasive, yet effective procedure that promotes blood circulation and opens up blocked pathways. It is effective in helping the body return to a better state of health.
