NEUROMODULATORY SURGERY

OVERVIEW

Neuromodulation includes treatments that involve stimulation or administration of medications directly to the body’s nervous system for therapeutic purposes. The target neurons for stimulation include those in the central and peripheral nervous systems, the autonomic nervous system, and the deep cell nuclei of the brain, resulting in modulation of their activity.

 

Neuromodulation includes several modalities, and is a cross-disciplinary approach to acute and chronic pain control and neurologic dysfunction. Neuromodulation can be used to treat movement disorders, spasticity, and epilepsy, as well as multiple pain syndromes.

 

  • Minimally invasive spine surgery

  • Spinal cord stimulation

  • Intrathecal Pain Management

NEUROMODULATORY TREATMENTS

BACK PAIN

There is no need to live with back pain, nor should you let it to prevent you from living your best life. Dr. Whitney James and her team are highly specialized in the treatment of both acute and chronic back pain. Therapies range from non-invasive treatments, such as integrative body work, yoga therapy and acupuncture, to more invasive therapies such as vertebroplasty for  spinal compression fractures, spinal cord stimulation, targeted intrathecal drug delivery and decompressive spine surgery. 

JOINT PAIN

Shoulder, hip and knee pain can be agonizing. The provider team at the clinic of Dr. Whitney James will gently evaluate your pain and develop a comprehensive plan for treatment. Therapies for treatment of joint pain include diet modification, physical therapy, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications, joint injections and stem cell therapies. Neuromodulatory treatments, such as dorsal root ganglion stimulation may be recommended as well.

NEUROMUSCULAR PAIN

Neuromuscular pain typically originates in the muscle fibers of the body. The neuromuscular junction, where peripheral nerves meet muscle fibers, can be safely modulated to effectively treat muscle pain. Treatments for neuromuscular pain include diet supplementation, heat therapy, integrative body work, yoga therapy, trigger point injections, muscle fiber stimulation and targeted intrathecal drug delivery. One, or several, of these therapies may be recommended in your individualized treatment plan. 

CORUS SPINAL SYSTEM | CASE STUDY

CORUS is a highly effective, minimally invasive system for the surgical treatment of neck and upper back pain. CORUS is used to treat neuroforaminal stenosis with radiculopathy in the cervical spine. It is also effective at treating medically refractory facet joint arthropathy (or arthritis) in the cervical and high thoracic spine.

Dr. James accepts Medicare, Medicaid, and most other forms of insurance.
