Long Description

We put our patients first! We provide a holistic approach to help alleviate pain and discomfort. Our goal is to find the origin of your pain. Once the cause is identified, we utilize a combination of exercise and diet to complement medical and interventional pain management sessions.

Without the use of surgery and downtime, we aim to help you get back to living your life with improved body functionality and mobility as quickly as possible.


At Advanced Sports & Spine, the majority of our pain management procedures are performed in our Charlotte office. We use state-of-the-art equipment. Our ultrasound and fluoroscopic guidance techniques ensure accuracy, help limit complications, and increase success rates.
