DISC is a procedural-based practice that offers a welcoming and compassionate environment with state-of-the-art methods and treatment techniques.
Procedures used to alleviate pain include facet, sacroiliac and peripheral joint injections; selective nerve root and epidural nerve blocks; spinal cord stimulators; manipulation under anesthesia; endoscopic laser disc disc decompression; and radiofrequency neurotomy.
DISC’s onsite physician and pain management professionals are dedicated to assessing chronic ailments and providing safe and effective treatment plans. Using the most modern modalities of pain management, DISC programs help patients minimize their pain and maximize their function.
Properly diagnosing the origin or cause of the pain is paramount. The process for identifying the source of the problem may include X-rays, CT scans, or a MRI. When treating spine-related pain, tests such as discography, bone scans, nerve conduction studies and myelography may be conducted.
Healing the pain means treating the whole patient – body, mind and spirit – undergoing psychological, physical and therapeutic care. This holistic approach provides efficient use of the patient's treatment sessions and results in a quicker and more complete recovery. DISC utilizes a network of complimentary professionals to enhance the treatment received and maximize post-procedure function.
