Physiatry & Rehabilitation

Physiatry is the branch of medicine that deals with restoring function for a person who has been impaired as a result of a disease, disorder, pain or injury. Rehabilitation physicians (Physiatrists) are nerve, muscle, and bone experts who treat injuries or illnesses that affect how you move. Their goal is to decrease pain and enhance performance without surgery. As a physiatrist, Dr. Ibazebo will design a treatment plan that can help patients stay as active as possible at any age. Dr. Ibazebo treats the whole person, not just the condition, restoring as much function and independence as possible.

Electrodiagnosis (EMG & NCS)

Dr. Ibazebo uses electrodiagnosis as an extension of the medical physical exam to diagnose conditions such as carpal tunnel syndrome, focal nerve entrapments, nerve root lesions (radiculopathy), systemic muscle and nerve diseases and neuropathies. Nerve conduction studies (NCS) directly evaluate nerves by using a small stimulation or “shock” to start a nerve impulse that can be measured in terms of speed and strength. Electromyography (EMG) indirectly evaluates the nerve by looking at the muscles using a very small needle electrode. Results of the study are discussed the same day.

Radiofrequency Ablation

In radiofrequency ablation, Dr. Ibazebo will use fluoroscopic guidance to introduce a small electrical current to specific nerves.  The heat will deactivate the nerves and reduce their ability to conduct pain signals.  This minimally invasive procedure can be helpful in managing back and joint pain.  Pain relief from RFA can last 6 - 12 months or even years.  More than 70% of patients treated with radiofrequency ablation experience pain relief.  Contact Dr. Ibazebo to see if you are a good candidate for RFA.
