The specialized staff offers a variety of interventional (injection) options, including:
Cervical/Lumbar Epidural Steroid Injection: Steroid is injected into the epidural space, which is located outside of the spinal cord area, to treat symptoms secondary to nerve root irritation or central spinal canal stenosis.
Cervical/Lumbar Facet Joint Injection: Select forms of neck and back pain may be reduced or eliminated by injections of steroid around the joints of the spine. This is a great treatment for pain resulting from arthritis of the spine.
Sacroiliac Joint or SI Joint Injections: Injection of steroid into the sacroiliac joint that targets a reduction in referred pain to the lower back, buttock and leg. The SI Joint can become inflamed and painful for some patients.
Trigger Point Injection: Injection of local anesthetic and steroid into painful areas of muscle spasm.
Occipital Nerve Blocks: Injection of steroid targeting the occipital nerves at the base of the skull offering relief to patients suffering from a multitude of different headache types and/or occipital neuralgia.
Peripheral Nerve Block: Injection of steroid at painful peripheral nerves for both diagnostic and therapeutic benefit. Injections can target intercostal (rib), ilioinguinal, iliohypogastric, lateral femoral cutaneous, femoral or sciatic nerves.
