Epidural Injection

Finding the right solution for pain management is a complex process that sometimes requires getting to the root of the problem, which means treating the pain at the spinal level.

Spinal Cord Stimulation

Spinal cord stimulation is a form of neurostimulation therapy that can be very effective for those who suffer from chronic pain. The goal is to mask the pain by creating an alternative sensation.

Sympathetic Block

A sympathetic nerve block is injection therapy that targets the sympathetic nervous system. This is one of three divisions of the autonomic nervous system that regulates unconscious actions.

Radiofrequency

Put simply, it's a procedure that uses radio-frequency waves to create heat. In medicine, radio-frequency is used in many different ways. For pain management, it works to disrupt nerve conduction with heat.

Nerve Block

A nerve block is an injection of medicine into areas around sympathetic nerves, ganglion, or chain in either the lumbar or cervical region. The goal is to block the pain messages those nerves send to the brain.

Facet Injection

With a facet injection, Dr. Lo combines a long-lasting steroid with an anesthetic agent to provide relief from both pain and inflammation. These injections are done in various areas along the spine, depending on the location of the pain.

Joint Injection

Joint injections introduce medication, usually a steroid, directly into the joint where it can do the most good. The ultimate goal is to reduce the inflammation in the joint that makes the movement so difficult while reducing pain at the same time.

Pain Management

Dr. Lo's ultimate goal is to provide the best pain management solution possible. He takes the lead in coordinating referrals to other adjunctive providers to ensure that you truly have a comprehensive treatment plan to maximize your long term health and well being.

INSURANCES ACCEPTED

Dr. Lo accepts all PPOs, Worker's Compensation, Personal Injury Cases and Medicare. Dr. Lo participates in most local HMO plans (for HMO plans, authorizations may be required for the initial consult)
