Our first line of therapy may be a combination of physical therapy,and anti-inflamatory medications. However, if these measures fail to facilitate adequate pain relief and a return to normal functioning the physicians at Pain Institute of Long Island have the resources and experience to recommend a wide variety of minimally invasive procedures. Some of these procedures are Transforaminal, Interlaminar or Caudal Epidural Injections.
In some cases a referral to a spine surgeon may be necessary and we have relationships with the best surgeons in the area.
