Invasive pain management
If your complaints prove to be persistent and do not reduce rapidly enough with the help of (ortho-)manual medicine or MDT McKenzie, it is possible to give a diagnostic or therapeutic injection to the spine. This is done under fluoroscopy, for which we make use of the strict guidelines of the International Spine Intervention Society (ISIS). With this technique fast pain relief is often achieved, that in most cases is permanent.
Besides for pain management, this technique is also used to exactly pinpoint where the pain is coming from. Prior to the treatment you will get a clear explanation from your doctor about the procedure and the expected results.
At the moment we only carry out a part of these treatments at our location in the Medisch Back Neck Centrum, most of the pain management takes place in the clinics of the Rugpoli and Rugzorg Nederland. Both are recognised by the Ministry of Health as approved institutions for medical specialist aid.
