PAIN MANAGEMENT INJECTIONS

 

PAIN MANAGEMENT INJECTIONS are a common treatment option for many forms of low back pain, leg pain, hip pain and sciatica. The ultimate goal of the injection is pain relief.  This can be accomplished by one injection or a series of injections.  Here are a few of the types of injections we can provide:

  • Epidural Steroid Injections:   These are injections used for effective non-surgical treatment for those individuals who suffer from chronic neck, back and leg pain.

  • Sacroiliac Joint Injections:  These are injections used for effective non-surgical treatment for individuals who suffer from low back, hip pain or sciatica.

THE PROCEDURE

The physician numbs the skin and inserts a needle. Contrast solution is injected so the physician can use a x-ray guidance to visualize the affected areas and assure correct placement of the needle.  Then a mixture of anesthetic, saline and anti-inflammatory medicine is injected around the affected area which blocks pain signals from reaching the brain.

 

AFTER THE PROCEDURE:

Patients are able to leave the surgical center the same day.
