Title: Pain Management Tampa FL

Welcome to SpinePain Orthopedic Injury Center
  • If you are suffering from back pain or neck pain
    and you are not finding relief else where,
    contact the SpinePain Orthopedic Injury Center
    at 727-210-2225 to make an appointment to meet
    with us.
  • Our SpinePain Orthopedic Injury Center team
    reviews each case, verifying which non-operative
    approach is the best route for each patient.
    Popular traditional treatments like Epidurals may
    be paired with totally new methods of treatment.
    The end goal is always relieving the acute pain
    and working toward clear management of ongoing
    pain levels.

SpinePain Patient Services
  • Discogram
  • A discogram can show if a disc has begun to
    rupture and if it has tears in the tough outer
    ring (the annulus). By injecting dye into the
    disc to increase pressure it can be determined if
    this is the area causing the pain.

Trigger Point Injections Trigger Point Injection
procedure used to treat painful areas of muscle
that contain knots of muscle that form when
muscles do not relax. Many times, such knots can
be felt under the skin, and in some instances may
irritate the nerves around them and cause
referred pain.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy. A small vial
of a patients blood is spun in a Centrifuge to
separate the platelet-rich plasma from the other
components. The concentrated platelets are
injected at the site of the patient's injury. The
growth factors that platelets secrete spur tissue

  • Spinal Cord Stimulation
  • A spinal cord stimulator is a device that uses
    pulsed electrical signals to the spinal cord to
    control pain. Spinal cord stimulation consists of
    stimulating electrodes, implanted in the epidural
    space, an electrical pulse generator, implanted
    in the lower gluteal region. Spinal cord
    stimulation has notable analgesic properties and
    can be used for complex regional pain syndrome
    and other neuropathies.

Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA) RFA, or rhizotomy,
is used to treat severe chronic pain. Radio
frequency waves are used to produce heat on
specifically identified nerves surrounding the
facet joints on either side of the lumbar spine.
By generating heat around the nerve, its ability
to transmit pain signals to the brain is
destroyed, thus ablating the nerve.
Electrodiagnosis Electrodiagnostic tests assess
the neuropsychological function of peripheral
nerves. It is a method of obtaining information
by passively recording the electrical activity of
body parts, or by measuring their response to
external electrical stimulus.
SpinePain Patient Services
  • Medial Branch Blocks
  • Medial branch nerves are very small nerve
    branches that carry pain messages from the facet
    joints and the muscles around the joints. This
    procedure is a non-surgical treatment that
    relieves pain from a specific facet joint using
