At Advanced Injury Care, we offer a variety of pain management treatments options.
Epidural Steroid Injection
Epidural steroid injections are a common treatment for neck and back pain. They may be given in the cervical, thoracic, lumbar or sacral regions of the spine.
Nerve Root Block / Transforaminal Injection
A nerve block injection is used to both diagnose and treat an inflamed spinal nerve. In this procedure, steroid is administered near the spinal nerve as it exits the intervertebral foramen.
Facet Joint Injection
Facet injections are injections that treat pain and inflammation to the joints of the vertebrae in the cervical, thoracic and lumbar spine.
A steroid injection is a minimally invasive procedure that can temporarily relieve pain caused by an inflamed joint.
A tendon is a band of fibers that connects muscle to bone. Soreness in the tendon causes tendonitis. Your provider will put a needle directly adjacent to the tendon and inject a small amount of corticosteroid and a local anesthetic.
Trigger Point Injections
These injections involve injecting a small amount of local anesthetic, sometimes along with a steroid medication, directly into painful trigger points. Trigger points are specific sites on the muscles that cause pain when your doctor presses on one during an exam.
A discogram is an invasive diagnostic test that uses x-rays to examine the intervertebral discs of your spine. A special dye is injected into the injured disc or series of discs.
