Intramuscular stimulation (IMS) is a minimally invasive technique that can reduce pain aggravated by chronic muscle tightness. This technique uses insertions of small needles to release muscle tension, which is often associated wtih nerve pain.
Thoracic outlet syndrome results when nerves in the thoracic outlet—located between the upper ribs and shoulder—get irritated by the surrounding muscles or ribs.
Electromyography (EMG) and nerve conduction studies are diagnostic studies that allow us to “write down of the electrical activity of muscle” and “measures how fast nerve impulses travel within your body”.
When the nerves that exit the spine get compressed or irritated—for example from a disc herniation—numbness, tingling, pain and muscle weakness can result.
Facet joints are located on each side of the vertebra.When irritated or injured, they can become inflamed and cause back or neck pain. We can treat facet joint pain with image-guided injections.
When nerves in the neck are irritated or compressed, one may develop pain from the neck into one or both arms. Accurate diagnosis and a graded approach to treatment are key for managing this condition.
Concussion is also known as a mild traumatic brain injury (TBI). This is caused by a bump or blow to the head. Although concussions are usually not life-threatening, their effects can be serious.
When injuries occur, the area may not heal completely due to lack of proper treatment or poor blood supply. For this reason, ligaments, joints and tendons heal very slowly.
We are pleased to announce the addition of PRP therapy at Seattle Spine & Sports Medicine. PRP is a newer regenerative treatment, commonly used to treat tendon or soft tissue injuries. The PRP treatment helps promote tissue repair, using your body’s own healing properties.
