Common Conditions

Listed below are some of the more common conditions Dr. Weisbein treats:

hidden

Low Back and Neck Pain

Discomfort in the lower back and neck can range from intermittent and dull to chronic or sudden (acute) and severe, interfering with your mobility and quality of life.

Abdominal and Pelvic Pain

The cause of chronic abdominal pain is unknown, and a number of diagnoses are ruled out before this diagnosis is made. Chronic pelvic pain is non-menstrual in nature and is diagnosed after it lasts for three months or longer and is severe enough to interfere with sleep, work, and sexual intercourse.

Fibromyalgia

Chronic, widespread pain that is diagnosed by a positive sensitivity to at least 11 of 18 established tender points. The pain is characterized as deep muscle pain along with nerve pain and muscle spasms.

Spasticity and Muscle Spasms

Common symptoms of multiple sclerosis, these symptoms can manifest as mild muscle tightness to severe, painful, uncontrollable spasms.

Degenerative Joint Pain

Usually due to arthritis, which is inflammation of the joint itself, degenerative joint pain can also occur due to injury of the surrounding muscles, tendons, ligaments, bone, and cartilage.

Arthritis of the Spine

Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis, which occurs when the protective cartilage on the ends of your bones wears down with age or overuse.

Spinal Cord Injury

When your spinal cord is injured, damage is incurred by your surrounding vertebrae, tissues, blood vessels, and nerves, which can result in loss of mobility or sensation.

hidden

Cancer Pain

Cancer pain can be caused by the cancer itself, i.e., pressure from a tumor, or from testing or even the necessary treatment.

Spinal Stenosis

Spinal Stenosis is a narrowing of the spinal canal, usually due to aging, that can lead to chronic pain, numbness, tingling or weakness of your leg.

Osteoporosis

Osteoporosis is a disease process that causes loss of bone density and strength that can lead to bone fractures.

Incontinence

Loss of urinary control that can range from leaking a few drops of urine from coughing, sneezing, or laughing to a severe urgency that renders you unable to get to the toilet in time.

Headache

Chronic, recurring headaches affect millions of Americans, with over 50 percent of them being migraine headaches.

Neuropathy & Neuropathic Pain

Dysfunction or injury to the brain, spinal cord, or peripheral nerves. Nerve function can be altered both at the site of the injury and in your central nervous system causing the wrong signals to be sent and resulting in chronic pain.

CRPS (Complex Regional Pain Syndrome)

Formally known as RSDS (Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy Syndrome), CRPS is believed to develop due to dysfunction in your central or peripheral nervous system.The chronic pain associated with this syndrome is continuous, progressive, and intense.

Treatments Offered

Dr. Weisbein specializes in numerous pain management techniques to treat a variety of conditions:

hidden

Spinal Cord Stimulation

A small generator is implanted under the skin to deliver low-voltage electrical current to your spinal cord to block chronic pain.

Cancer Pain Treatments

Chronic pain from cancer can be addressed with nerve blocks, epidural injections, and steroid injections.

Lumbar Epidural Steroid Injection

Your spinal cord and nerves are protected by a cover, the dura, and the area around the dura is called the epidural space. The lumbar epidural space is in your lower back, and a steroid injection in that space relieves low back and leg pain.

Lumbar and Cervical Medial Branch Blocks

Your medial nerves are located near the facet joints of your spine, and an injury there can cause these nerves to send pain signals to your brain. These injections block those signals providing effective pain management in your low back and neck.

Lumbar, Cervical, & Genicular Radiofrequency Ablation

Radiofrequency energy is used to disrupt nerve pain transmission in the lumbar spine to eliminate low back pain, in the cervical spine to treat chronic neck pain, and in the genicular nerve to relieve chronic knee pain.

Lumbar Sympathetic & Stellate Ganglion Blocks

Local anesthetic injections are used to disable the sympathetic nerve transmissions from the lumbar spine to eliminate chronic pain in your low back and from the cervical spine to treat chronic pain in your neck.

Occipital Nerve Blocks

A steroid is injected around the occipital nerves located at the back of your head just above your neck to suppress chronic headaches.

hidden

Intrathecal Drug Delivery System

A drug pump and catheter are implanted under your skin to deliver pain medication into the fluid around your spine, an area called the intrathecal space.

Doral Root Ganglion Stimulation

Nerve stimulation therapy via an implant that targets your dorsal root ganglion for pain management of more difficult-to-treat chronic pain.

Cervical and Lumbar Facet Joint Injections

A steroid and anesthetic are injected into the facet joints of the cervical spine to reduce neck pain or the lumbar spine to treat low back pain.

Cervical Interlaminar Epidural Steroid Injection

A steroid is injected in the epidural area of the neck to treat chronic pain there along with your upper back, shoulder, and arm due to injury, or associated with bone spurs, fibromyalgia and other chronic pain conditions.

Botox for Cervical Dystonia, Spasticity, and Migraine Headaches

Botox is injected to block nerve signals causing neck spasms, stiffness, involuntary jerkiness, or repetitive movements associated with various neurological conditions, and to seven key areas of the neck and head to reduce the number and intensity of migraine headaches.

Sacroiliac Joint Injection

An injection to the joints that connect your spine to your hip bones to treat low back and buttock pain.

Vertebral Compression Fractures

If conservative therapy is not effective, vertebral augmentation, a rebuilding of fractured vertebra, is performed.

Take the first steps towards a better life.

Pain can manifest differently from person to person and Dr. Weisbein recognizes that you are so much more than a diagnosis. She is committed to providing you with the best possible interventional pain management therapies that are tailored to your individual needs, designed to relieve your specific symptoms, and get you off the bench and back into the game of life.
