At All Valley Rehabilitation, Spine and Pain Institute, Dr. Manohar uses interventional pain management to treat various musculoskeletal conditions and injuries, including:
You might benefit from interventional pain management if you regularly experience headaches or migraines.
At All Valley Rehabilitation, Spine and Pain Institute, Dr. Manohar offers various services, including:
Electromyography is a noninvasive test that assesses electrical activity in response to nerve stimulation. Dr. Manohar offers several similar tests, including nerve conduction studies, somatosensory evoked potential tests, and brainstem auditory evoked response tests.
Bursa injections use corticosteroids (anti-inflammatory medication) to relieve bursitis pain. Bursitis is inflammation of the bursa –– small fluid-filled sacs that pad the bones, muscles, and other tissues near your joints.
Epidural steroid injections treat chronic lower back pain. Dr. Manohar administers these injections into the epidural space around the nerves in your lumbar spine. They provide instant relief that lasts for months (sometimes years).
Facet joint injections treat damage or inflammation affecting the facet joints –– the small joints that connect your vertebra to the bones in your spine. Without treatment, facet joint problems could affect your mobility and quality of life.
Muscle injections provide lasting relief for trigger points — tight muscle knots. Anyone can develop trigger points, but they’re most common in athletes and people with poor posture.
To determine the best treatment approach, Dr. Manohar reviews your medical records, completes a physical exam, and orders diagnostic imaging. After making a diagnosis, he develops a personalized treatment plan that aligns with your goals and needs.
