To manage your pain, interventional spinal injections may be used. These injections are non-surgical, non-opioid pain management solutions for neck or back pain. They may be offered after or in conjunction with medications and/or physical therapy.
Spinal injections can be more effective than oral medications because the medication is delivered directly to the injured area. Healing can begin immediately. Spinal injections are performed in the office by your medical doctor. The procedure takes about 10-15 minutes, plus an additional 15 minutes of monitoring. Spinal injections may involve an anesthetic and a steroid injection which delivers an anti-inflammatory solution to the source of your pain.
Injections may also be a diagnostic tool. When administering an anesthetic such as lidocaine, if you experience numbing or temporary relief, we can infer that we have correctly located the source of your pain. This will help with correctly targeting future treatments.
Interventional spinal injections may include epidurals, selective nerve root blocks, facet joint blocks, medial branch blocks, radiofrequency ablation, or sacroiliac joint blocks.
If you are experiencing neck or back pain, schedule a consultation with our board certified physiatrist for diagnosis and treatment. Interventional spinal injections are effective treatment solutions to help alleviate any inflammation, swelling, stiffness, and discomfort.
