Category : Uncategorized

On Monday, May 9, 2016 MensHealth.com published a fantastic article dealing with 5 different body parts that are extremely sensitive to pain featuring medical insight from Dr. Spiel!
Below is an excerpt featuring Dr. Spiels take on the front and back of the knee for the full article click here!

4. The front and back of your knee
Like your tibia, the front of your knee doesn’t have much in the way of padding from muscle or fat.

Plus, the top layer of bone in your knee cap, called the periosteal layer, is loaded with sensory nerves, explains Douglas J. Spiel, M.D., a board certified radiologist who specializes in interventional pain.

The back of your knee cap is also unprotected. It sits in a ridge between the middle and the sides of your thigh bone, or femur.
“When it gets banged up, you bruise the back of the knee cap and the femur,” Dr. Spiel says. In other words, you’re getting two hits—and pain signals from two places—for the price of one.

Do you perform Epiduroscopy?

Category : Uncategorized

Epiduroscopy is a procedure performed through the sacral hiatus utilizing a flexible scope along with a laser. Although I have successfully performed these in the past, I feel that the level of visualization and ultimate efficacy is subpar when compared to endoscopic procedures performed through the neural foramina and interspinous space. These procedures utilize rigged scopes and high definition lenses yielding better outcomes. Lasers and radio frequency probes along with manual tools are also utilized to remove discs, scars and bony overgrowths under endoscopic guidance.

Prescription For… Preventing Back Pain

Category : Uncategorized

Maintaining a healthy diet and weight will greatly reduce the risk of back injuries. Excess body weight can compress intervertbral discs and subject the spine to unnecessary stresses that will make every movement that much more of a burden. Eating a healthy diet, though, will not only help you maintain a healthy weight, but also give you the vitamins and minerals your body needs for proper bone health. A balanced diet will provide a sufficient amount of iron, magnesium, calcium, as well as vitamins A, B12, C, D, and K. These nutrients help keep your bones sturdy and your back strong!
