At Coastal Spine, we are experienced in providing neck and back pain treatments for patients with chronic, lifelong pain or those who are struggling with pain for the first time. Our commitment to you is regardless of your condition, and our team of specialists will get you back to normal activity as quickly as possible.
One of the ways Coastal Spine attempts to alleviate pain is through radiofrequency ablation treatment. In this procedure, radiofrequency is used to pinpoint nerves that carry pain impulses and eliminate them.
Nonsurgical neck and back pain treatments are what we always look to provide for patients. This approach encompasses physical therapy, injection therapy and medicines such as anti-inflammatory drugs.
We have found epidural steroid injections are an effective back and neck pain treatment. Of our patients who have undergone spine injection treatment, about 75 percent report a significant reduction in pain, numbness and tingling for up to several months or more, sometimes even permanently.
Many types of symptoms and pain are directly related to the nerves in the back and neck. Those nerves can also control pain and sensation in other areas of the body. We conduct two different tests jointly to study nerves and muscles to determine the extent of your condition: nerve conduction studies and electromyography (commonly known as an EMG).
