Dr. Heidi Seifert is double board-certified in both anesthesiology and pain medicine, and she takes a multidisciplinary approach in resolving chronic pain. Our treatments for pain in and radiating from the spine are effective at diagnosing and treating many conditions, assisting our patients in restoring their joy in life.
Injections – spine
Our Houston spinal injections include two distinct treatments to diagnose and treat the source of your pain:
- Epidural injections: Injections of anesthetics or steroids around the nerves extending from your spine are called epidural injections, and they can effectively reduce inflammation, treat pain, and help diagnose the exact problem in your spine and related nerves.
- Facet injections: Facets are the joints on either side of your spine where two adjacent vertebrae meet, and they provide stability and allow you to twist and turn. Injections of anesthetics or steroids into these joints can reduce inflammation, treat pain, and restore mobility and function to your back.
Regenerative – spine
Where medication and other treatments have failed, treatments that capitalize on your body’s innate healing power have produced startlingly effective results. Platelet-rich-plasma and prolotherapy are two modern innovations in regenerative medicine, and can effectively treat:
- Degenerative disc disease
- Herniated disc
- Spinal facet pain
- Pinched nerves
- Sacroiliac joint pain
Our Houston regenerative spinal therapies have been shown to reduce pain and inflammation while restoring your range of motion and mobility.
