Spine Injections

Spine injection is a nonsurgical treatment modality recommended for treatment of chronic back pain. Injection of certain medicinal agents relieves the pain by blocking the nerve signals between specific areas of the body and the brain. The treatment approach involves injections of local anaesthetics and steroids into the affected soft tissues, etc. It may also involve complex nerve blocks and spinal cord stimulation.

Many of the procedures performed include, but are not limited to:

  • Trigger point injections
  • Epidural steroid injections
  • Nerve blocks
  • Facet injections (for spine pain)
  • Various joint injections (such as shoulder, elbow, hip, sacroiliac, and knee)
  • Viscosupplementation injections to the knee
  • Radio frequency ablation (RFA)
  • Occipital nerve blocks

(Many of these injections are performed using fluoroscopic or ultrasound guidance when indicated)
