Back Pain and Sciatica

Jennifer Bunch, MD, Pain Management

Wednesday, November 14

12:00 Noon

If you suddenly start feeling pain in your lower back or hip that radiates to the back of your thigh and your leg, you may have a condition known as sciatica. Sciatica results from a herniated disc in your spinal column that is pressing on the nerve roots in the lumbar spine. Join Dr. Bunch as she discusses this condition – learn about prevention, restoration of function and pain reduction.

Coolief studies have demonstrated: Effective pain relief and Greater mobility for People with Knee Pain and Osteoarthritis

cool kneeCOOLIEF radiofrequency is a new non-invasive, outpatient treatment option for those suffering from knee pain, hip pain, SI joint, and chronic back pain. This advanced procedure uses radiofrequency energy to safely target the sensory nerves causing pain. COOLIEF circulates water through the device that serves as a heat sink while heating nerves to create a treatment area that is larger than conventional radiofrequency ablation. This combination targets the pain-causing nerves without excessive heating or damage to surrounding tissues. I have performed this procedure with great success for many patients. It is safe for patients who have undergone joint replacement because this procedure blocks nerve pain before the nerves enter the joint space.

Merry Christmas from Doctor Bunch!

Christmas is a wonderful time of year for millions of people worldwide, and a holiday that I personally cherish. For many of us, it’s a time to spend with family and dear friends, and that is what I plan to do in the coming weeks. I’d like to personally wish everyone a merry Christmas this year! And if you don’t celebrate Christmas, then happy Hanukkah or even just have a great holiday season!

I’d also like to thank everyone who has helped make my practice successful in such a short time. I’m especially grateful to all my patients for putting their faith in me. I hope I’ve been able to help each of you find treatment that brings you closer to your goals.

As I’ve said before, I will be changing locations in the near future. As of right now, I do not have any new announcements, but very soon I should have some great news to share with everyone!

New Office Location

I’m pleased to announce today that I will be moving my medical practice to a new location and putting down permanent roots in the St. Petersburg area. This isn’t the beginning of my career, nor even the beginning of my work in this beautiful part of Florida. As my patients and colleagues know, I have enjoyed working in Pinellas County offering a whole-person approach to chronic pain treatment in this community.

Coming very soon–the start of a new phase of my practice: I will be changing locations and management, so that I can continue to provide my patients with the very best in pain management.

I unfortunately do not have any new information to share publicly at this time, but I will keep this webpage updated once I do. In the meantime, please feel free to leave comments or email me for information about setting up an appointment.
