Types of Spine and Pain Management
An epidural injection is a pain management treatment for patients who suffer from chronic pain in the extremities, back, or neck caused by inflammation in the spinal nerves.
A nerve root block is a pain management treatment for patients who suffer from chronic pain. Selective nerve blocks can be performed at any level of the cervical, thoracic, or lumbar spines.
Facet joints are joints of the back which cause focused pain in the back which does not radiate into the legs or arms. Injection of a steroid can decrease inflammation and decrease pain.
A rhizotomy is a pain management treatment that severs the medial branch nerves that provide pain signals to the brain from the facet joints.
An occipital nerve root block is a pain management treatment for patients who suffer from chronic occipital headaches.
Injection of steroid to decrease inflammation in the nerves to the muscles of the neck.
A vertebroplasty is a non-invasive procedure that treats spinal compression fractures through needles guided by X-ray into the bone and injection of cement into the bone to shore up the bone and decrease pain.
Cervical steroid injection procedures are injections administered to relieve pain located in or near the neck, shoulders and arms caused by a pinched or inflamed nerve(s) in the cervical spine. Treatments are for conditions such as herniated discs, spinal stenosis or arthritis, which can compress and pinch nerves, causing inflammation and pain.
The steroid injection procedure involves injections into the cervical spinal and surrounding area that aid in pain relief to the pinched nerve pain management and decrease the inflammation and swelling of the inflamed or pinched nerve(s).
Steroid injections can decrease pain in the shoulder, knee, hip, ankle, sacroiliac, wrist, elbow, and trigger finger.
Plantar Fasciitis is inflammation of the fibrous tissue that connects the heel bone to the toes. It can cause severe heel pain, often a stabbing pain occurring with your first steps of the day.
Treatments include physical therapy, shoe inserts, steroid injections, & surgery.
Carpal Tunnel Injections
Carpal tunnel syndrome is a common cause of pain numbness/tingling in the hand which stems from inflammation around the median nerve traveling in a narrow passage at the wrist. Steroid injections into the tunnel can decrease inflammation and reduce pain.
