Back and neck pain can occur due to many different reasons. When your pain is no longer temporary a different intervention may be necessary.Before you consider back surgery come to Performance Spine & Sports Medicine for expert, quality treatment and care, we exhaust conservative, non-surgical spine treatments first. Epidural Steroid Injections Epidural steroid injections (ESIs) are a common treatment option for many forms of low back, leg, neck (cervical), and mid spine (thoracic) pain. The goal of the injection is pain relief; at times the injection alone is sufficient to provide relief, but commonly an epidural steroid injection is used in combination with a comprehensive rehabilitation program to provide additional benefit. ESIs deliver medication directly (or very near) the source of pain generation. The x-ray (fluoroscope) guided injection includes a long-lasting steroid and a local anesthetic. The steroid reduces the inflammation and irritation and the anesthetic interrupts the pain signal transmission.

The entire staff at Performance Spine and Sports Medicine are very professional and the care that they provide is first rate. I have had PT and Chiropractic care in the past and I would rank this organization better in every way. The integrated model of having Chiropractors, Physical Therapists, massage therapists, and physicians under the same roof is very helpful and really facilitates interaction between all of the care providers. I would not hesitate to recommend this organization.
This is my second time at PSSM and the results are great once again. The staff was great and everyone is friendly and warm and most importantly they have gotten me back to pursuing my passion and work once again. I went in for a back problem and now I'm 90% back to normal and working on their stretches to make it 100%. No pain meds!!!!
