Conservative and Interventional Treatments and Procedures

Conservative treatment options can include physical therapy, medications, TENS/ muscle stimulation, and psychological counseling.


If these conservative treatments fail to relieve the pain, Interventional diagnostic and treatment options may be the next step. These include:

  • Epidural Steroid Injections
  • Selective Nerve Blocks
  • Facet and Sacroiliac Joint Injections
  • Sympathetic Blocks
  • Discography
  • Spinal Cord Simulation
  • Intrathecal / Spinal Infusion Pump Implantation
  • Radiofrequency Neurotomy / Rhizotomy
  • IDET (Intradiscal Electrothermal Therapy)
  • Nucleoplasty / Percutaneous Disc Decompression
  • Kyphoplasty / Treatment of Vertebral Compression Fractures
