Welcome to Interventional Spine & Pain, P.A. | Spine DallasInterventional Spine and Pain, P.A. was founded with the practice belief that the most effective method of improving chronic pain conditions is through a multidisciplinary approach and non- surgical interventional procedures. This is done while remaining cognizant of the fact that pain can affect an individual’s quality of life, functionally, emotionally, and socially.
Through conservative and interventional procedures, our treatment goal is to minimize dependence of opiods, improve quality of life, improve function, and improve pain coping skills so that the patient may better adapt to their daily activities and get back to their normal daily function.

Why Does My Back Hurt?
By Nathan S. Walters, M.D., Texas Institute for Surgery, North Dallas LIVING WELL Magazine
Up to an astonishing 90% of people will experience back pain at some time in their lives. According to the National Center for Health Statistics, over 14% of new visits to primary care physicians are for low back pain. As we age, we endure both macrotraumas, repetitive microtraumas and undergo changes in body habitus that alter and redistribute biomechanical forces unevenly on the spine. Much like your knee, the padding or cartilage (i.e., the disc) is mostly water-based and will progressively degenerate the longer we spend in gravity. This degeneration of the spine has characteristic anatomic, biomechanical, radiologic, and clinical findings and is called Degenerative Disc Disease. Factors such as weight, genetics, trauma, environment can contribute to an earlier presentation of this disease, affecting people of all ages, with radiologic evidence of disc disease increasing with age to nearly 100% by age 60.

Pain Mapping Interventional Spine & Pain of Dallas Texas
Interventional Spine and Pain continues to provide the most advanced diagnostic techniques and treatments of back pain through comprehensive physical examination along with spinal pain mapping procedures. When physical examination or imaging studies fail to determine the etiology of pain, our Physicians will provide spinal pain mapping techniques through selective nerve root blocks, medial branch nerve blocks of the facet joints, sacroiliac joint injection, peripheral nerve blocks, provocative discography and sympathetic blocks in the diagnosis of low back pain of undetermined etiology.

- Epidural Steroid Injections - An Epidural Steroid Injection (ESI) is a simple, safe, and effective non-surgical treatment that involves the injection of a steroid medication similar to cortisone into the Epidural Space of the spine.
- Lumbar/Cervical Radiofrequency Ablation - Radiofrequency lesioning is a procedure used to provide longer term pain relief than that provided by simple injections or nerve blocks.
- Discography - A discogram, also known as disc stimulation, is a brief outpatient diagnostic procedure that is performed in order to identify painful discs in the spine.
- Spinal Cord Stimulator Trials
