At Blue Ridge Bone & Joint, our interventional physiatry specialist is the leading expert in caring for those suffering from acute pain.

Interventional physiatry is a multidisciplinary branch of medicine focused on diagnosing the source of spine and musculoskeletal pain and employing nonsurgical treatments to effectively reduce or alleviate pain.

At Blue Ridge Bone & Joint, our interventional physiatrist is dedicated to helping patients who suffer ongoing pain and discomfort from conditions such as low back pain, muscle pain, shingles, sciatica, complex regional pain syndrome, and various spine and other general musculoskeletal conditions, including sports-related injuries.

The practice of interventional physiatry employs a wide range of treatment methods because the pain experienced can vary from mild to excruciating, episodic to continuous, and can be inconvenient to completely incapacitating.

Pain has many forms and classifications—from mild to severe, sharp to dull, sporadic to perpetual. Because pain can be generated from any number of injuries and/or conditions, interventional spine specialists employ a wide range of treatment methods. Therefore, an accurate diagnosis of the source of your pain is an imperative prerequisite to determining a course of treatment.

Our interventional physiatrist provides a variety of treatment options, including interventional procedures such as lumbar and cervical epidurals, facet injections, radiographic and/or ultrasonic guidance injections, stimulators, and much more, to treat the root of your acute pain.

Our interventional physiatrist at Blue Ridge Bone & Joint understands that acute pain forces you to succumb to a restricted, inactive lifestyle and can significantly impact your quality of life. That’s why our physiatrist is passionate about working with you to thoroughly assess, accurately diagnose, and effectively provide treatment, so you can get back to living an active lifestyle.
