Nonsurgical spine treatments

If surgery is not required, doctors may suggest less invasive treatments, such as:

  • Interventional spine procedures — Procedures such as radiofrequency ablation can use heat to destroy tissue or sensory nerves that cause pain.
  • Nerve stimulation — Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) therapy or implanted peripheral nerve stimulation (PNS) devices deliver low-voltage electrical currents to relieve pain.
  • Physical therapy and rehabilitation — Board-certified physiologists will develop and supervise a fitness plan to help you strengthen and stabilize your core.
  • Spinal injections — Epidural, facet joint, sacroiliac joint, nerve blocks or trigger point injections can be used to relieve your pain and reduce inflammation.
Advanced spine surgery

Our surgeons use advanced intraoperative imaging tools to create 2D and 3D images. This offers more precise diagnosis and treatment, as well as enhanced safety for you.
