Medial Branch Block Atlanta, GA

Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians is an orthopedic, interventional spine and sports medicine practice that specializes in finding solutions to complex, chronic, and acute spine conditions and injuries using interventional spine treatments. Medial branch blocks are one method of helping individuals with chronic pain find relief from their symptoms, improved back and neck function, and enjoying a higher quality of life. At Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians, we are Georgia’s leading provider of medial branch blocks, and we can help patients pinpoint the source of pain and inflammation in order to recommend the appropriate long-term treatment plan.

A medial branch nerve block is a type of injection used to determine if the facet joint is causing the patient’s back pain. The facet joints are pairs of small joints between the vertebrae in the back of the spine. These joints contain small nerves, called medial branch nerves, which carry pain signals from the facet joints to the brain. If a patient experiences significant pain relief immediately after a medial branch block injection, the facet joint is determined to be the source of the patient’s pain. From this diagnosis, one of the physicians at Ortho Sport & Spine can then determine the best type of treatment to provide pain relief.

The doctors at Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians are expertly qualified and experienced to administer medial branch blocks. Medial branch blocks are performed as an outpatient procedure in the comfort of our fully equipped outpatient surgery center. If you would like more information regarding medial branch blocks and determining if you are a candidate for the procedure, contact Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians today to schedule a consultation. We look forward to helping you stay active and live your best life.

Surgery was a success my left knee is fully functional again. Langer and his staff was very helpful through this entire process they assigned me a top physical therapist Cara which was great at helping me to improve now just up to me to continue to condition myself back to the way I was physically before the injury and hopefully I never have to endure any future injuries that lead to surgery. Overall a great help and experience after surgery was completed. Thank You to Langer and his staff.

Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians are excellent in the work they do. They take their time with each patient and make sure you walk away with an understanding of exactly what you're going through. I have been a patient here twice and I could 100% assure you that you will have a great experience. Further the physicians are very knowledgeable and experienced at what they do. Moreover, the entire staff are welcoming and accommodating to your needs. I work in Entertainment, and have appeared several times on television (Google "David Wells and Ricky Johnson). I recommend and trust Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians.
