PM&R Interventional Spine Program

Several of our Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Physicians (Physiatrists) are specialists in spinal care. They partner with Orthopaedic surgeons and physical therapists to offer a complete spectrum of spinal care within the Spine Center at UR Medicine.

Treatments offered by our Physiatrists include:

  • Medical evaluation and treatment - the vast majority of symptoms related to spinal conditions can be treated conservatively with relative rest, education, activity, and/or work modification, bracing, medication, and/or active physical rehabilitation. These measures are almost always incorporated into the treatment program of spinal conditions as they empower patients to be proactive with acute management and can be crucial in achieving long-term success.
  • Image-Guided Spine-Specific Injections - our interventional spine specialists are experts at utilizing x-ray guidance to deliver powerful anti-inflammatory medication (cortisone) safely and precisely to the potentially inflamed swollen spinal structure responsible for your symptoms.
