What We Specialize InHerniated Disc - A herniated disc is caused by a tear in the outer ring of an intervertebral disc, which forms a cartilaginous cushion between the bones of your spine. The disc’s center protrudes into the surrounding tissue, often leading to irritation in nearby nerves.
Cervical Radiculopathy (Pinched Nerve) - Cervical radiculopathy occurs when repeated stress causes a nerve to become compressed. This often leads to pain in the neck and upper back and a feeling of numbness, tingling, or weakness in the arms.
EMG & Nerve Conduction Studies (NCS) - An EMG is used to detect and diagnose nerve damage or injury. This test will either rule out or pinpoint a condition that may be occurring in the nerve paths along the patient's muscles.
Cervical Epidural Steroid Injections - Epidural injections serve to reduce inflammation in the vertebral discs, where nerve roots may be compressed. A cervical injection is a diagnostic and therapeutic procedure to address pain that originates in the neck and radiates down the arm.
Neck or Cervical Pain - The most common cause of neck pain is muscle strain and tension. However, pain in the cervical spine can also originate from more serious conditions that affect the musculoskeletal system.
