Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) January 06, 2014
The top pain clinics in Phoenix, Arizona Pain Specialists, are now offering outpatient procedures to relieve the pain from vertebral compression fractures. Known as kyphoplasty or vertebroplasty, the procedures are able to provide immediate pain relief in 90% of patients. Call (602) 507-6550 for more information and scheduling.
In the US, over 700,000 spinal fractures occur each year. The majority are due to osteoporosis, and may lead to considerable back pain, cramping, aching and disability. With each compression fracture that occurs, there is a five fold increase in further fractures taking place.
The most contemporary, cutting edge option for pain relief with compression fractures is a kyphoplasty or vertebroplasty procedure. The procedures take less than an hour and involve minimally invasive placement of bone cement into the fracture. The cement hardens within twenty minutes and acts as an internal splint.
The procedures entail very low risk and are performed with x-ray guidance. In addition to the spinal fracture procedures, Arizona Pain Specialists offers several additional procedures including epidural injections, joint injections, facet blocks, spinal cord stimulator implants, radiofrequency ablation and stem cell injections.
Ninety percent of patients achieve immediate pain relief and the ability to walk better. The procedures are performed by the Board Certified, Award Winning pain management doctors at 5 locations. Over 50 insurance plans are accepted.
