Cervical, Thoracic, Lumbar, Caudal Epidural Steroid Injections
Lumbar epidural steroid injection procedures to relieve low back and radiating leg pain. Steroid medication can reduce the swelling and inflammation caused by spinal conditions, and lumbar (lower back) conditions are no exception.
Transforaminal Epidural Steroid injection
This outpatient procedure is an injection of a steroid-anesthetic medication. The medication can reduce swelling and inflammation of irritated spinal nerves. This procedure is performed to relieve pain in the lower back and pain that radiates from the back to the legs.
Epidural Lysis of Adhesions
An epidural lysis of adhesions procedure (LOA) is a minimally-invasive method of removing scar tissue in the abdomen or pelvis, which is often a source of chronic pain. Scar tissue can develop for a number of reasons, from surgery to infection.
Cervical, Thoracic, Lumbar Medial Branch Block
The facet joints, found on both sides of the back of the spine, can become painfully irritated or inflamed. A medial branch block injection may help diagnose the source of a patient’s pain but numbing up the nerve that lies adjacent to these joints.
Radiofrequency Neurotomy/ Ablation
This is a minimally invasive procedure that uses heat from radio waves to treat painful facet joints in your lower back. This procedure is also called radiofrequency rhizotomy. It can treat pain that doesn’t respond to medications or to physical therapy.
Sacroiliac Joint injection
A sacroiliac injection is aimed at relieving pain caused by arthritis in the sacroiliac joint where the spine and pelvis meet. The steroid medication can reduce swelling and inflammation in the joint.
Trigger Point Injections
This outpatient procedure is designed to reduce or relieve the pain of trigger points and myofascial or muscle pain. These small, tender knots can form in muscles or in the fascia (the soft, stretchy connective tissue that surrounds muscles and organs).
