NYC Osteopathic Specialist Now Offers Fast-Acting Treatment for Neck and Back Pain
Date:4/15/2013

New York, NY (PRWEB) April 15, 2013

The lead medical practitioner at Living Well Medical, a state-of-the-art physical rehabilitation center in NYC, is delighted to introduce facet block injections, an innovative approach that provides rapid relief for neck and back pain caused by trauma or imbalance stemming from the spine’s facet joints.

Facet joints are tasked with connecting and regulating movement of each vertebral motion segment along the spine, and, as is the case with all joints, are susceptible to degeneration due to wear-and-tear caused by the nature of their function. This degeneration may result in facet joint arthritis or facet joint syndrome, where the affected facet joints begin to injure the surrounding nerve roots and soft tissue, manifesting in varying levels of neck or back pain. Facet joint syndrome may also be caused by spinal injury and unhealthy physical habits (poor posture, lack of activity, and more).

Facet joint syndrome or arthritis can be easily diagnosed by Living Well Medical's osteopathic physician Dr. Webb and her physical rehabilitation team. Pain stemming from this condition will remain localized in the joint area, allowing for uncomplicated diagnosis and treatment. Once the medication is deposited into the affected joint area, symptoms will immediately improve.

This straightforward, minimally invasive procedure is designed to deliver fast relief straight to the source of pain. Guided by fluoroscopy, facet block injections are administered into the joint capsule, and the solution takes effect instantly by reducing inflammation and blocking pain signals from the treated nerves. This allows the patient to remain pain-free in order to undergo treatments that will correct and reverse the spinal damage that is the root cause of pain. Dr. Webb’s staff provides customized non-surgical treatments to safely and effectively achieve long-term relief, including chiropractic manipulation, physical therapy, and acupuncture. Facet block injections treat the pain caused by facet joint disorders, so that patients may engage in the treatment protocols necessary to heal and correct spinal problems.

Patients in NYC who experience back or neck pain and are looking for immediate relief in order to regain mobility and comfort are encouraged to contact Dr. Stephanie Webb for a personalized consultation on facet block injections, in addition to other highly effective, non-surgical treatment options to manage pain. For additional information on Dr. Webb’s signature treatments, as well as the various non-surgical therapies offered by the Living Well Medical staff, please visit the Living Well Medical website.
