EPIDURAL STEROID INJECTIONS
An epidural steroid injection (ESI) is a minimally invasive procedure that can help relieve neck, arm, back, and leg pain caused by inflamed spinal nerves due to spinal stenosis or disc herniation. Medicines are delivered to the epidural space, which is a fat-filled area between the bone and the protective sac of the spinal nerves. Pain relief may last for several days or even years. The goal is to reduce pain so that you may resume normal activities and a physical therapy program.
NERVE BLOCK INJECTIONS
Nerve blocks are special procedures that can help prevent or help manage various types of pain. They are an injections of medicine that blocks pain from specific nerves. Our services include: Selective Nerve Root Block (SNRB), Facet Blocks (Cervical, Thoracic, Lumbar), Occipital Nerve Block, and Sympathetic Blocks.
TRIGGER POINT INJECTIONS
A trigger point injection can help soothe muscle pain, especially in your arms, legs, lower back and neck. It also can be used to treat fibromyalgia, tension headaches and myofascial pain.
Trigger points are painful “knots” in your muscles. They form when a muscle can’t relax. Sometimes you can feel these knots when you rub your muscle. Injecting small amounts of anesthetic and steroid into the trigger point can help alleviate the pain.
SPINAL CORD STIMULATION THERAPY
Spinal Cord Stimulators (SCS) are implantable neuromodulation devices used to treat chronic pain by generating mild electrical pulses to nerves along the spinal cord (dorsal column) which interrupt the perception of pain as it travels to the brain.
Spinal Cord Stimulation Therapy is often considered for those who suffer from chronic pain and have not responded to more conservative therapy.
RADIOFREQUENCY NERVE ABLATION
Radiofrequency Nerve Ablation as a minimally invasive treatment option offered to those who suffer from chronic nerve and back pain. This treatment option involves the use of radiofrequency waves to destroy a damaged nerve’s ability to send pain signals to the brain.
