Whether you are a competitive athlete, a weekend warrior, or just enjoy spending some time on the tennis court or golf course, injuries can put you on the sidelines. Our team includes specialty providers in physical medicine and rehabilitation, as well as a fellowship-trained physician in sports medicine who can help you get back to doing the activities you enjoy.
Our specialists have the expertise to evaluate a variety of musculoskeletal conditions, from sports or work-related injuries to chronic overuse pains. We know surgery isn’t always the answer so we offer a wide range of treatments that fit your busy life including medications, exercise, therapy, and injections.
Our physical medicine and rehabilitation specialists are trained in the diagnosis and treatment of neurologic and musculoskeletal disorders. We create customized treatment plans with the goal of helping patients improve their function, recover from injury, and prevent re-injury. We are part of the Saint Luke’s Spine Center, so your physicians will work closely with surgical specialists, pain management physicians, therapists, and support staff to provide you with an exceptional experience.
Musculoskeletal and spinal procedures
Our providers are trained to perform a variety of musculoskeletal and spinal procedures, including:
- Joint injections (shoulder, hip, knee, ankle, foot, wrist, hand)
- Injections for bursitis
- Nerve blocks
- Trigger point injections for muscular pain
- Trigger finger injections
- Carpal tunnel injections
- Hyaluronic acid injections
- Botox injections for chronic migraines or spasticity
Clinic staff are also trained in fluoroscopy (X-ray)-guided lower-back injections such as epidural steroid injections, facet joint nerve blocks, genicular nerve blocks, glenohumeral dilatations for adhesive capsulitis (frozen shoulder), and sacroiliac joint injections.
Sports or musculoskeletal ultrasound is used to provide in-office diagnostic assessment and guidance. Unlike static x-rays or MRIs, your area of pain can be visualized in a dynamic fashion, while limiting exposure to radiation. Using this technology allows our providers to visualize needle placement in “real-time” and ensure that injected medications are placed directly in the area where they can be most effective.
Electromyography and nerve conduction studies
Electrodiagnostic studies are used to diagnose problems with nerves or muscles. Weakness, numbness, tingling, or shooting pain are all reasons your doctor may want to do an EMG and nerve conduction study. Whether it is a pinched nerve in the neck or back, carpal tunnel syndrome, neuropathy, or a problem with the muscle itself, our specialists perform this procedure to help you get the appropriate treatment for your condition.
