At the Center for the Functional Restoration of the Spine, we understand the impact of chronic pain on your quality of life. That's why we offer advanced pain management injections to help you regain control and find relief from debilitating pain.
Your Pain Management Injection Options
Pain management injections, such as Epidural Steroid Injections and Facet Joint Injections, are powerful tools in our arsenal to combat chronic pain. These procedures are designed to alleviate pain stemming from various spinal conditions and musculoskeletal issues. Here's what you need to know:
Epidural Steroid Injections
This procedure involves the injection of a combination of local anesthetic and steroid drugs either directly into the collection of nerves in the back or into the joint spaces of the spine. It's particularly beneficial for conditions like
- Herniated discs
- Spinal stenosis
- Irritated nerves
By reducing nerve inflammation and providing temporary pain relief, these injections can also serve as diagnostic tools to pinpoint the source of your pain.
Facet Joint Injections
Facet joints are located in the spine and can become a source of pain due to inflammation, arthritis, or injury.
Facet Joint Injections deliver medication directly into these joints to relieve pain and improve mobility.
They are effective in treating conditions like facet joint syndrome and degenerative disc disease.
Pain Relief Is On the Way
Before the procedure, you'll receive pre-injection instructions to ensure a smooth experience. It's essential to discontinue specific medications at least 7 days before the injection, as directed by our team. On the day of the procedure, you should allocate 60 to 90 minutes for paperwork, preparation, and recovery. The injection itself typically takes 15 to 30 minutes, depending on its nature.
