My Technique

I have invented a special chair for doing injections into neck, thoracic spine, and lumber spine in the sitting position. This has an advantage of doing procedures safer and more convenient for the patients.
I am also able to perform a join injection, shoulder joint and knee joint injections using my approach, which is relatively painless and very simple. You would not find such approach from any other pain management provider and you would not learn it from the textbook.
