Every year, tens of thousands of people undergo hip replacement surgery. One of the major reasons is the wearing down of the hip joint. This is most often due to the effects of osteoarthritis; however, other health conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, bone tumors and avascular necrosis – a condition that causes loss of bone due to insufficient blood supply – can also lead to problems with the hip joint. Keeping your hips in healthy condition can help you avoid this surgery.
Chronic back pain can be a debilitating condition for many people. Back pain can affect every movement that a person makes while awake and sleeping. People often feel unrested because of the lack of quality of sleep, and they are unable to participate in many activities that they enjoy with family and friends because of their constant pain and discomfort. At Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians, we are dedicated to helping our patients find relief from their pain so that they can stay active and live their best lives. Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians is pleased to offer expert spinal cord stimulation therapy for the treatment of chronic back pain. We are an interventional spine, sport, and orthopedic practice featuring a team of double board certified interventional spine physicians and orthopedic specialists.
Spinal cord stimulation is a treatment option for patients with chronic back pain who have not found pain relief from other treatments. This treatment uses neurostimulation to apply an electrical current to the source of the pain. This creates an agreeable sensation that blocks the brain's ability to sense the pain that was previously experienced. Because all people have different tolerances of pain and their experiences with spinal cord stimulation will change and improve, stimulation can be adjusted as necessary. This type of therapy has been shown to be effective for Failed Back Surgery Syndrome, Complex Regional Pain Syndrome, Causalgia, Arachnoiditis, and Peripheral Neuropathy. The specialists at Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians are highly experienced using this therapy to help patients find the relief they need.
