Dr. Verma uses a combination of treatments to address back pain, which might include:

  • Exercise therapy
  • Massage therapy
  • Physical therapy
  • Pain journals
  • Educational pain resources
  • Trigger point injections
  • Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections
  • Epidural steroid injections
  • Nerve blocks
  • Medical marijuana

Typically, the least invasive methods are all most patients need. However, if your back pain persists, Dr. Verma offers a range of advanced interventional treatments that can help. Some of these include:

Radiofrequency ablation

Radiofrequency ablation uses heat to damage the nerve endings in your back so they can’t send pain signals to your brain.

CornerLoc™ SI Joint Stabilization System

CornerLoc helps to stabilize painful sacroiliac joints and encourages the fusion process.

Stryker’s iVAS Elite balloon kyphoplasty system

Kyphoplasty is an advanced treatment for vertebral compression fractures that raises the height of the vertebra and stabilizes it with bone cement.

Spinal cord stimulators

Spinal cord stimulation involves having a small device implanted under your skin. The device sends electric pulses to the nerves in your spine, changing pain signals into tingling sensations or switching them off altogether.

Spinal Simplicity’s Minuteman

Minuteman is an interspinous-interlaminar device that helps with spinal fusion.
