Doctor Schaeffer has spent over a decade educating and treating patients with spinal disorders and has been named one of the Top Doctors in the region. He believes that over 90% of all back pain can be successfully treated without surgery.
He focuses on finding the cause of the pain and finds that with education and administration of specific treatments, pain can be alleviated. Treatment begins with a thorough examination and may include diagnostic testing, medication, physical therapy, fluoroscopically guided spinal injections and alternative therapeutic exercise programs.
Emphasis is placed on regaining a healthy level of function and returning to activities as quickly as possible. Dr. Schaeffer’s goal is to “get you off the sidelines and back into the game of life.”
Dr. Schaeffer performs fluoroscopic guided (advanced x-ray) and/or ultrasound guided spinal injections including:
- Selective Epidural Injections
- Sacroiliac Joint Injections
- Facet Joint Blocks
