We Perform

The physicians at Desert Spine and Sports Physicians are non-surgical specialists, meaning they are experts at using everything but surgery to help relieve pain and improve function. We focus on the whole person rather than just the problem area and perform:

 

  • Comprehensive Musculoskeletal Evaluations
  • Spine Injections Under Fluoroscopy
  • Joint, Tendon and Bursa Injections
  • Ultrasound-Guided Injections and PRP Therapy
  • Electrodiagnostic Testing
  • Individualized Physical Therapy Planning
