Neck and back pain relief in Wellington and Boynton Beach

Dr. Alejandro G. Tapia is a board-certified and fellowship-trained interventional pain management physician in our Boynton Beach and Wellington locations.

A familiar face on local TV, he brings extensive experience in minimally invasive techniques to treat neck and back pain. Dr. Tapia is a member of the International Spine Intervention Society, Diplomat of the American Academy of Pain Management, American Society of Regional Anesthesia and the Florida Society of Interventional Pain Physicians.

His approach is evidence-based and devoted to using the most cutting-edge approaches medicine has to offer. That is one reason he has embraced laser techniques in his practice.

Laser Spine Procedures in Palm Beach County

The laser is the latest tool used by Physician Partners of America to relieve neck and back pain without opioids. It precisely targets pain-causing nerves along the spine and ablates them quickly. The incision is just 2-3 mm. – less than a quarter-inch. That means muscles are not cut or torn, and therefore, recuperation takes days instead of  months. You can walk out of the procedure suite. The majority of patients report that the original pain is gone.

Dr. Tapia performs this procedure for two common debilitating conditions: arthritis of the spine and facet disease.  His offices accept Medicare and most insurance. You can be sure he will explain all your options, from conservative to cutting-edge, and do his best to get you back to doing the things you love.

The knee connects the thigh bone (femur) with the shin bone (tibia) and consists of many parts including the knee joint, knee cap (patella), ligaments, tissues and more. It’s a very complex part of the body and, due to it’s location and job, is prone to injury.

Anything that increases the already-present possibility of injury is considered a risk factor. Some risk factors for knee pain are listed below.

Risk Factors for Knee Injury


  • Obesity. If it seems like everywhere you turn you’re told that being overweight increases your chance of injury it must mean something, right? Extra and undue stress on your knee joints adds pressure and causes the knee to work that much harder to do otherwise normal everyday tasks. It also increases the amount of wear and tear the knee undergoes, eliminating the vital cartilage that cushions the bones. This could lead to osteoarthritis.
  • Low muscle strength. If the muscles surrounding the knee are weak and lack flexibility, they aren’t able to support the knee or absorb enough of the stress exerted on the joint throughout the day.
  • Sports & physical activity. Sports and physical activities that call for the repeated twisting and/or pounding of the knees through constant running or jumping causes stress on the joint and can cause pain and injury.
  • Existing injury. A previous knee injury or a current one that is still healing can put you at risk for additional injuries if the knee is made to sustain pressure or stress.
