Injection Therapies

Injection therapy is a minimally invasive treatment used to treat acute and chronic back pain. A non-surgical treatment, many patients successfully experience relief from their chronic back pain symptoms.  

We are Doctors and Physiatrists who believe in a balanced and multi-disciplinary approach to diagnose and treat the pain our patients are dealing with.

Dr Rao is MY Absolute Favorite Doctor! Love him! His staff at Mt Airy and in Frederick, Maryland are the best of the best. Caring, kind and very friendly. I would recommend anyone to seek out Dr Rao and his staff in a heartbeat.

Randee Fischer

I LOVE this place. Dr B. and Dr Rao saved my life. In 2014, I could only walk about 15ft and had to use a wheelchair. It happened so quickly to me. I had extreme pain in my back, and legs. My other pain management wouldn't help at all.
