Doctor Fills Syringe With Medication

Interventional spine medicine is a subtype of neurology that specializes in minimally invasive solutions to chronic pain. Your spine is responsible for passing signals to the brain, where they are received and may be processed as pain. An interventional procedure uses injections, blocks, and stimulators to alter how nerves function in the spinal cord. Thus, these pain signals are never processed or felt. The following procedures are proven effective in eliminating pain and improving patient recoveries:

Before Dr. Ragukonis can develop a treatment plan, he must diagnose the cause of your pain. Bergen Pain Management utilizes state-of-the-art electrodiagnostic techniques to ensure accurate results. These tests read and analyze the electrical impulses between muscles and nerves. By detecting where the signal falters, doctors can track pain back to its source. Test types include:

With the aid of this technology, we can provide faster and more accurate diagnoses to our patients. We are then able to begin treating pain quickly and confidently, knowing that our plan was developed based on reliable results. For you, this means higher-quality treatment and a more successful recovery.

Myofascial pain syndrome is a specific type of muscle pain that originates from a sensitive knot, or trigger point. These trigger points can be created through injuries, stress-related tension, or repetitive muscle use in an occupation or hobby. Pressure on these points causes sudden spikes in pain. It is a progressive condition that worsens over time without treatment.

Trigger point injections are a proven solution to myofascial pain syndrome. To relieve pain, Dr. Ragukonis will inject a numbing agent or steroid into the trigger point associated with your pain. This breaks the muscle tension and provides instant, long-lasting relief.
