Back, Neck And Radiating Pain Injections
When back, neck or radiating pain won’t go away, your doctor will consider all the treatments that could help you – from exercise and physical therapy to medication and injections. Part of that treatment plan may include the following injections to diagnose and treat your pain and inflammation.
Nerve block injections may be used to try and diagnose what’s causing the back pain. If your doctor does this, you’ll be asked which injection causes the pain to go away. That nerve may then be chosen for an epidural injection or your doctor may decide to try another treatment.
Epidural injections help to decrease inflammation in order to stop the pain. Epidural means “around the spinal cord.” These shots often include a steroid medication, also called corticosteroid, and an anesthetic medication. They can also be used to diagnose the source of your pain.
Facet joint injections work by reducing the inflammation and irritation in the facet joints of the spine that are causing you pain. They are used for those suffering from back and neck pain. They can also be used to diagnose the source of your pain.
Prolotherapy/PRP/Stem Cell injections are also used to treat back and neck pain. See more information under the Regenerative Medicine Therapies page.
Nutritional Therapy and Exercise & Diet Counseling is also available.
