Back pain can result from musculoskeletal injuries (sprains or strains), acute disc bulges, herniated discs, joint dysfunction and many other injuries. Almost 80% of people will experience back pain at least once in their life, with the most common area of pain being in the lower back.
Access Sports Medicine treats children and adults with acute and chronic pain, rheumatologic conditions and musculoskeletal injuries. Our interventional physiatrist works closely with physical therapists and other allied health professionals to comprehensively manage and treat most back pain conditions while maintaining a focus in the body’s ability to heal itself.
Typically patients suffering from back pain choose to seek treatment when the duration or intensity of pain outlasts their usual tolerance.. For many, physical therapy coupled with interventional spine procedures is all that is needed..
Access Sports Medicine provides medical examinations, advice and solutions including:
- Diagnostic studies (i.e. electrodiagnostic studies called EMG/NCV)
- Physical therapy
- Interventional spinal injury treatments
- Epidural steroid injections (i.e. transforaminal, interlaminar and caudal)
- Facet joint injections

We are fully staffed to care for these problems with an impressive group of doctors, therapists, and other specialized spine providers working together in a unique collaborative facility.
