Back & Spine Pain
Your back and spine affect the feeling of the rest of your body. Pain in this area can come from a combination of bones, ligaments, and nerves and can be treated with several procedures, including:
Sacroiliac Joint Injection
The treatment for sacroiliac joint pain involves an injection to help diagnose the cause and minimize the pain. The diagnosis process starts with a numbing injection, followed by a series of movements to mimic previous pain points. If there is a relief in pain, a diagnosis is made. The pain release process is similar but includes an anti-inflammatory medication to help reduce the discomfort felt.
Lumbar Epidural Injection
The epidural injection is meant to decrease the pain and discomfort in your lower back (lumbar region). The treatment is a temporary relief of aches and can last from between one week to one year.
Lumbar Facet Joint Injection and Medial Branch Block
These two treatments are similar, by which they both treat pain caused from spinal facet joints. The difference between the two procedures is where the injection is made; directly to the joint or the joint space surrounding.
Lumbar Radiofrequency Ablation
This minimally invasive treatment provides a longer-term pain relief solution. The radiofrequency process actually removes the nerves carrying pain impulses, therefor removing the pain associated.
Caudal Epidural Injection
The epidural is a pain-reliving injection to the sacral region opening in the lower back. The relief will begin shortly after the procedure and can last up to several months.
