Indications

Musculoskeletal Pain

Musculoskeletal pain is caused by damage to a joint or any of its surrounding and supporting soft tissue structures, including bone, tendons (connective tissue that connects bone to muscle), ligaments (connective tissue that holds two bones together), and cartilage (a flexible tissue that lines the joint and provides support to bony areas. Such conditions typically present as pain, constant or intermittent, accompanied by limitations in mobility which consequently decrease our ability to enjoy your activities of daily living and significantly affect our quality of life. Pain could be acute, lasting for a few weeks, or chronic, affecting patients for more than 3 months, which usually the result of diseases like osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and gout.

Interventional Pain Management

Interventional Pain Management

When conservative options like physical therapy, home exercise programs, medications, stress reduction, and psychology are not completely effective in treating neck (cervical), mid back (thoracic), and/or low back (lumbar) pain, interventional pain management techniques are the next treatment alternative to try to avoid surgery.

Soft Tissue & Peripheral Joint Injections

Injection therapy is one of the most effective treatment options for musculoskeletal conditions. Although steroid injections are sometimes successful, they can cause multiple side effects and compromise the immune system. For that reason, there are also natural options like platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and exosome injections. These regenerative medicine techniques not only help decrease pain and inflammation but, due to the presence of multiple chemicals and growth factors, also produce regeneration and healing of the tissue. Therefore, they can significantly reduce and, in some cases, eliminate pain in the treated areas. For that reason, these modalities are transforming the way we treat some acute and chronic pain conditions.

EMG & Nerve Condition Studies

EMG & Nerve Condition Studies

An electromyography (EMG) and nerve conduction study is a specialized test of your nerves and muscles which is used to diagnose or identify the cause of symptoms like numbness, tingling, burning pain, pins and needles sensation, or muscle weakness. First, an electrical impulse is used to stimulate some nerves in your upper and/or lower extremities, which will allow Dr. Jeannot to assess how rapidly and effectively your nerves are working. In other words, we are measuring how fast and how strongly your nerves are sending signals to your muscles. In other cases, the brain and spinal cord are not sending the right impulse to the nerves. Then, during the electromyography, a very small, thin needle is inserted into your muscles to record their electrical activity and evaluate if your nerves are sending the correct signals to those muscles.
