The top pain centers in Arizona, Arizona Pain Specialists, are now offering over a dozen effective nonoperative treatments for spinal stenosis. The therapies include both medical and interventional pain therapies, and are administered by Board Certified pain doctors at seven Valley locations. Call 602-507-6550 for more information and scheduling.
For the millions of Americans who suffer from spinal stenosis, the condition can be extremely painful and debilitating. Spinal arthritis leads to soft tissue and bony overgrowth, which can pinch several nerve roots and lead to significant pain. The pain may be in the back, buttock and legs, making it very difficult for individuals to perform activities of daily living and recreational activities.
The treatments offered at the seven Phoenix Pain clinics with Arizona Pain Specialists include oral and topical pain medications such as NSAIDS, muscle relaxers, neuropathic medications and possibly short term opiates. In addition to traditional medications, the newest therapies involve topical prescription pain creams that include FDA approved ingredients and provide pain relief directly at the area of discomfort.
Interventional therapies include several types of epidural steroid injections, facet blocks, trigger point injections and more. The epidural injection techniques have improved dramatically, with a new type being offered called tranforaminal epidural injections.
In addition, Arizona Pain Specialists offers chiropractic treatment with spinal manipulations, physical rehabilitation, acupuncture and spinal decompression therapy.
Spinal decompression therapy is a new FDA cleared treatment that has been revolutionary in spinal stenosis treatment. Studies have shown spinal decompression therapy provides pain relief in over 85% of patients.
The success rates with the nonoperative treatments for spinal stenosis exceed 95% for achieving pain relief and helping patients avoid the need for spine surgery.
Over 50 insurance plans are accepted at the Phoenix Pain centers including Medicare, Medicaid, Worker's Compensation, PPOs, personal-injury, HMOs and self-pay as well.
