What Conditions Do We See?
The pain management specialists at our facility treat pain stemming from a wide array of conditions, including:
- Disc herniation – When the tough exterior of a spinal disc tears—whether due to injury or gradual deterioration—the jelly-like material within can leak out. If this material comes into contact with nearby nerves, it can cause radiating pain, weakness, and numbness.
- Fibromyalgia – The cause of fibromyalgia still hasn’t been discovered, but individuals with fibromyalgia have to live with chronic pain throughout the entire body. This discomfort can manifest as sharp pain, a dull ache, or a throbbing sensation.
- Sciatica – The sciatic nerve runs from the lower back, through the hips and buttocks, and down each leg. When this nerve becomes compressed—whether due to a herniated disc, a bone spur, or any other cause—it can lead to radiating pain, numbness, weakness, and a burning or tingling sensation.
- Spinal stenosis – Injuries and natural age-related degeneration can cause the spinal canal to narrow. When this happens, the spinal cord and surrounding nerves can become pinched, resulting in pain, numbness, and tingling in the torso and in the extremities.
We also treat patients whose pain suddenly arose, such as those who were in car accidents and those who injured themselves while at work or playing sports.

At Tahoe Fracture & Orthopedic Medical Clinic, we understand that every patient is different.

Our pain management specialists also offer assistance with medication management.
