Spinal Injections involve the precise administration of medication directly into a targeted area of the spine. The medication typically consists of a local anesthetic and a corticosteroid. This combination serves to block pain signals and reduce inflammation, providing both immediate and long-term relief from chronic pain.
Who is a Candidate for Spinal Injections?
Spinal Injections are beneficial for individuals experiencing chronic back or neck pain that hasn’t been alleviated by conservative treatments. Conditions such as herniated discs, spinal stenosis, sciatica, and spondylosis can often be effectively managed with this treatment. At SOLUTIONS Pain and Spine, our expert team will carry out a comprehensive evaluation to establish whether Spinal Injections are the appropriate treatment for your condition.
What Can I Expect During the Procedure?
Spinal Injections are performed on an outpatient basis and generally take less than 30 minutes. During the procedure, you will lie on your stomach or side, and the treatment area will be cleaned and numbed. Using X-ray guidance, our highly skilled specialist will accurately insert the needle and administer the medication.
Post-procedure, you might experience some temporary numbness or weakness, but these effects usually dissipate within a few hours. Most patients can return home the same day and notice significant pain relief within a few days.
