Individuals suffering from chronic pain know that even the simplest of tasks can be difficult when dealing with neck or back pain. Dr. Yusuf Mosuro advises these individuals to seek out treatments as the New Year approaches. Starting the year off right should start with proper pain relief and treatments.
For people suffering from neck and back pain, Dr. Yusuf Mosuro has a number of treatment options that are proven to be successful in alleviating both neck and back pain. A common procedure is Cervical Facet Joint Injections that are designed to alleviate the pain causing discomfort in the neck and even possibly headaches. With this form of injection, the irritated joints are treated with a steroid designed to alleviate the pain. A local anesthetic is used to numb the area of injection before the procedure takes place, reducing the chances of discomfort.
Dr. Yusuf Mosuro also utilizes Selective Nerve Root Blocks to treat individuals with herniated discs, back pain, leg pain, among other forms of discomfort. With this form of treatment the goal is to locate the source of the nerve irritation and to greatly reduce the pain experienced by the patient. The entire procedure typically lasts between a half-hour and a full hour, and if successful further treatment options become more specified as the problem area has been identified.
Another treatment option that Dr. Yusuf Mosuro offers his patients is Radiofrequency Ablation. This is primarily designed to treat individuals suffering with Arthritis. This treatment also can be used to help individuals who are dealing with lower back pain as well as forms of neck pain. By heating up the irritated nerves, the procedure allows the nerves to relax, greatly relieving the amount of pain experienced by the individual. This treatment can last for months and for some patients the treatment can last them up through an entire year.
