Types of Spine Injections and Back Pain Injections We Offer

Lumbar Epidural Steroid Injection: 

A lumbar epidural steroid injection is a minimally invasive procedure where a combination of a corticosteroid and a local anesthetic is injected into the epidural space in the lumbar (lower back) region. This injection aims to reduce inflammation and alleviate pain caused by conditions such as herniated discs, spinal stenosis, or sciatica. 

Lumbar Transforaminal Injection: 

A lumbar transforaminal injection is a targeted approach to delivering medication into the nerve root sleeve, which is the space where a nerve exits the spinal cord. This injection is often used to treat conditions like radiculopathy or disc herniation by reducing inflammation and providing pain relief in specific areas of the lumbar spine. 

Cervical Epidural Steroid Injection: 

Similar to its lumbar counterpart, a cervical epidural steroid injection involves injecting a combination of a corticosteroid and a local anesthetic into the epidural space, but this occurs in the cervical (neck) region. This procedure is utilized to alleviate pain and inflammation associated with conditions like cervical disc herniation or spinal stenosis. 

SI Joint Injection: 

An SI joint injection involves the injection of a local anesthetic and corticosteroid into the sacroiliac (SI) joint, which is located at the base of the spine. This procedure aims to reduce inflammation and alleviate pain caused by conditions such as SI joint dysfunction or arthritis. 

Lumbar Caudal Block: 

A lumbar caudal block is a type of epidural injection that is administered through the sacral hiatus, which is a small opening in the sacrum. This injection is often used to deliver medication to the lower lumbar and sacral nerve roots, providing relief for conditions such as spinal stenosis, disc herniation, or chronic low back pain. 

Facet Injections: 

Facet injections involve the injection of a local anesthetic and sometimes a corticosteroid into the facet joints of the spine. These injections are commonly used to relieve pain caused by facet joint arthritis or inflammation. Facet injections can serve both diagnostic and therapeutic purposes. 

Trigger Point Injection: 

Trigger point injection is a procedure in which a local anesthetic, often combined with a corticosteroid, is injected into a muscle "trigger point" to alleviate pain and muscle spasms. These injections are commonly used for conditions such as myofascial pain syndrome or muscular injuries, providing targeted relief to specific areas of muscle tension and discomfort.
