This injection is performed to relieve low back pain and radiating pain. The medication can reduce the swelling and inflammation caused by many spinal conditions, such as herniated discs, Sciatica and Radiculopathy.
The spine is made from vertebrae and discs. The last one acts like cushions between vertebral bodies and allows the spine to bend and twist. When the disc is damaged due to aging or by traumatic injury, problems begin. The disc soft material pushes through the disc wall causing back pain at the disc level. The “herniation,” disc material may press against the large nerve roots. This results in pain radiating down one or both legs.
Degenerative Disc Disease
Condition that weakens one or more vertebral discs, which function like cushion between vertebrae.
This condition can develop as a natural process of aging, but can be due to the injury to the back.
Sacroliac Joint Injection
This procedure is performed to relieve the pain caused by Arthritis in the Sacroiliac Joint. The medication can reduce swelling and inflammation in the joint.
Medial Branch Block
This is a diagnostic procedure performed to determine if a specific Facet Joint is the source of the patient’s pain.
The procedure consists of an injection administered to block the nerves serving the painful Facet Joint.
Stellate Ganglion Block
The procedure is used to diagnose and treat pain coming from the sympathetic nerves. Used in treatment of RSD-complex regional dystrophy pain affecting face, neck, head or arms. Usually more than one injection is used to treat the patient.
The part of the nerve that connects to the spinal cord is called the root. If one of the roots is injured, the patient will experience pain, tingling, numbness in the part of the body that the above nerve served.
Epidural Injection and Lumbar Transforaminal
Procedures that are performed to relieve low back pain and radiating lower extremity pain. The medication reduces the swelling and inflammation of the nerve caused by other conditions, such as Sciatica, Herniated Discs, Spinal Stenosis and Radiculopathy.
The bones creating the spinal canal grow inward and narrow the spinal canal and pinch the nerves.
Procedure used for both diagnoses and treatment of back and neck pain. A Facet Joint Block Injection can confirm whether the Facet Joint can relieve the pain and inflammation.
