Welcome to Avicenna Spine and Joint Care
of Salt Lake City, Utah
Chronic spine pain, joint pain, and decreased mobility disrupts life for many people. These problems may be the result of spinal disc herniation, surgery, or joint degeneration. We offer pain management solutions to these problems in ways other than surgery.
Why are most of our patients sent to us by their friends and family?
I. Our treatment is based upon the latest scientific studies in pain medicine.
II. Our concern emphasizes not only pain relief but also a return to normal function. Pain is treated via therapeutic injections while function is addressed with manual therapy and exercise techniques.
III. Injection therapy consists of fluoroscopy or ultrasound guided "diagnostic" nerve blocks followed by radiofrequency treatment. One radiofrequency procedure can provide pain relief for twelve to twenty four months.
IV. The use of pain medication and steroids (cortisone) is minimized.
