Epidural Lysis of Adhesions
Epidural Lysis of Adhesions is a procedure performed to remove excessive scarring in the epidural space.
Epidural Lysis of Adhesions is due to scar tissue that may restrict the natural movement of nerves causing inflammation and pain. Patients who have had prior neck or back surgery but still have persistent pain may benefit from this procedure along with patients who have herniated disks. The Epidural is x-ray (fluoroscope) guided, a contrast dye is injected to locate the scared area, and a catheter is used to inject a special medication to help break-up the scarring as well as to mechanically break-up the scared tissue. Finally, a mixture of steroids and local anesthetics will be injected to decreased the inflammation and provide pain relief after the break-up of adhesions.

The entire staff at Performance Spine and Sports Medicine are very professional and the care that they provide is first rate. I have had PT and Chiropractic care in the past and I would rank this organization better in every way. The integrated model of having Chiropractors, Physical Therapists, massage therapists, and physicians under the same roof is very helpful and really facilitates interaction between all of the care providers. I would not hesitate to recommend this organization.
This is my second time at PSSM and the results are great once again. The staff was great and everyone is friendly and warm and most importantly they have gotten me back to pursuing my passion and work once again. I went in for a back problem and now I'm 90% back to normal and working on their stretches to make it 100%. No pain meds!!!!
