CFIMS therapy is
pain caused by disc herniation or stenosis arises from the nerve's inflammation or swelling. If the herniated disc suppresses the nerve or the nerve in the region of the narrowed spinal canal is suppressed, it will cause reduced movement of the nerve, scar tissue, adhesion and swelling around the nerve, ultimately causing pain. CFIMS therapy uses a round needle that does not cause damage to the nerves because it is long bent. The needle is inserted into the foraminal region to which the nerves pass. Then, the adhesion between the disc, stenosis and nerve is directly peeled to ensure space for the suppressed nerve. Anti-adhesion agents are also inserted into the region in order to treat inflammation and edema which can also cause pain.
- Unlike simple FIMS that stimulates the muscles or tendons, CFIMS is used to reach the foraminal region, the region of suppressed nerves and to eliminate the cause of the pain directly.
- Due to the use of a real-time imaging device (C-ARM), CFIMS is safe and accurate.
- Because it is done under a local anesthesia, there are no drawbacks from using a general anesthesia.
- It is safe for elderly patients or those with systemic diseases such as diabetes, hypertension, and osteoporosis.
- After local anesthesia, a special needle is directly inserted into the foraminal region of the disc stenosis or the suppressed nerve while the procedures are viewed using a real-time imaging device (C-arm).
- After the nerve adhesion is peeled with the special needle, the procedure will cause the stimulation on the nerve causing the pain and relax the the muscles and ligaments of the deep spine.
- If needed, anti-adhesion agents or nerve inflammation relaxants are injected.
- Neck (cervical) disc
- Neck (cervical) Spinal Stenosis
- Acute and chronic pain in the back of the neck
- Cervical joint pain and cervicogenic headaches
- Pain in the back of the neck and finger numbness caused by neural adhesion
- If pain persists after spinal surgery
- if the existing nerve block or neuroplasmy is less effective
