September is National Pain Awareness Month

This month was created to increase the awareness about the effects of pain and to open the lines of communication in our local communities, so that pain can be better understood and managed.

Did you know?

• Pain affects more than Americans than diabetes, heart disease, and cancer combined.

• 80% of people in the U.S. will experience back pain at some point in their lives.

One of our top priorities at Spine & Joint Pain Specialists is to spread awareness and educate our patients about treatments options available to alleviate painful conditions.

Fiesta 2022 is Here!

Fiesta Week, also known as Fiesta San Antonio and previously known as Fiesta San Jacinto, is a 10-day festival that started in 1891 as a flower parade dedicated to the heroes who lost their lives in the battles of San Jacinto and The Alamo.

Fiesta has grown to host over 100 events that feature parades, music, food, military and patriotic observances, and pageantry. It is a true celebration of San Antonio’s rich and diverse heritage, culture, and spirit!

Dealing with knee pain

Knee pain is one of the most common types of pain among adults, especially athletes and elderly adults. That comes as no surprise, considering how often we use our knees throughout the day, and how much impact and bodyweight knees have to support. But knee pain can be caused by many different things.

Our patients love us

You will not be disappointed

It is always a pleasure coming to SJPS. Everyone is so pleasant and care about your needs. I would and have recommended them to family and friends. You will not be disappointed

The environment was relaxed, pleasant, and professional...

Been going to Spine and Joint for the last few years and my experiences have been positive. Recently had a procedure done and the environment was relaxed, pleasant, and professional. This helps ease some of the stress and edginess that comes with most medical procedures. Thank you S&J.
