Interventional Spine Program

The Spine Intervention Program features a collaboration of seven physiatrists who offer expertise in the area of conservative care for spine disorders.

The Spine Intervention Program features a collaboration of seven physiatrists who offer expertise in the area of conservative care for spine disorders. They offer patients the most comprehensive clinical assessments, diagnostic expertise, and interventional procedures to help localize the mechanism of their spine pain and treat symptoms related to it. We use therapeutic exercise, patient education and advice, medication management, and interventional procedures to achieve optimal pain control and function. While we focus on nonsurgical techniques to improve quality of life, we collaborate closely with spine surgeons at multiple Harvard hospitals when surgical intervention is opted for.

The Spine Intervention Program focuses on diagnostic and conservative non surgical therapeutic management of complex painful spine problems, including:
- Herniated discs
- Spinal stenosis
- Radiculopathy
- Neck pain
- Low back pain
- Thoracic pain
- Cervicogenic headaches
- Vertebral compression fractures
- Sacral insufficiency fractures
- Myofascial pain
 
Management of these conditions includes imaging modalities, therapeutic exercises, alternative medicine, and spine interventional procedures.
 
Spine Interventions include:
- Spinal nerve root blocks, cervical, thoracic and lumbars
- Facet joints injections and radiofrequency ablation, cervical and lumbars
- Sacroiliac joints injections and radiofrequency
- Percutaneous lumbar discectomy
- Discograms, cervical, thoracic and lumbars
- Vertebroplasty and Sacroplasty

At Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital, located at 125 Nashua Street, new patients are evaluated for the Spine Intervention Program. Additionally, interventional procedures and injections are provided to current patients in the Outpatient Department on the 2nd floor.
