Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation


Dr. Droppers is an interventional physiatrist specializing in non-operative treatment of spinal conditions. He believes in exercise and appropriate physical therapy protocols as hallmarks of treatment; however, he also utilizes spine interventions and sometimes non-opioid medications if function remains limited despite therapy.

He performs fluoroscopically-guided epidural injections, facet joint injections, and radiofrequency ablations. He also has a special interest in peripheral joint issues, as well as peripheral nerve disorders.  He performs ultrasound guided peripheral joint injections and electrodiagnostic studies for these conditions.
