Osteoarthritis Of The Knee
The most advanced OsteoArthritis treatment in Portland uses an innovative approach to reduce or eliminate knee pain swiftly. Portland Pain & Spine is available to treat you.
Neuro-Stim System For Opioid Reduction
Neuro-Stim System is a non-pharmacological option that uses electrical current to stimulate neurovascular bundles in the ear and possibly the autonomic nervous system, to treat pain and improve sleep. NSS is a Federal Drug Administration (FDA) approved device intended to be used for chronic and acute pain.
Spinal Cord Stimulation
Also known as a dorsal cord stimulator, is a treatment for pain that blocks nerve impulses to the spine. SCS is a device placed under the skin and works by sending a mild electric current to the spinal cord.
Endoscopic Lumbar Decompression
The concept of Endoscopic Laser Decompression & Foraminoplasty is the reduction of lumbar segmental pain by removal of causal pain sources whilst preserving motion at the segment.
Diagnostic Spine Injections
Injections comprise another nonsurgical treatment option for low back pain. They are typically considered as an option to treat low back pain after a course of medications and/or physical therapy is completed, but before surgery is considered. Injections can be useful both for providing pain relief and as a diagnostic tool to help identify the source of the patient's back pain. Diagnostically, injections can be used to help determine which structure in the back is generating pain.
Platelet Rich Plasma Injections
The use of platelet rich plasma (PRP), a portion of the patient's own blood having a platelet concentration above baseline, to promote healing of injured tendons, ligaments, muscles, and joints, can be applied to various musculoskeletal problems. PRP injections are prepared from tubes of the patient’s own blood with strict aseptic technique. After being centrifuged, the activated platelets are injected into the abnormal tissue, releasing growth factors that recruit and increase the proliferation of reparative cells.
Kyphoplasty / Vertebroplasty
Vertebroplasty and kyphoplasty are minimally invasive procedures performed to treat vertebral compression fractures (VCF) of the spine. In a vertebroplasty, bone cement is injected into back bones that have cracked or broken. The cement hardens with the goal of relieving spinal pain and restoring mobility. Kyphoplasty differs from vertebroplasty in that a balloon is first inflated in the vertebral body to create a cavity into which cement is then injected under lower pressure.
