Injection therapy relieves spine, nerve, and muscle pain. Our specialists perform many types of injections. Injections are tailored to the patient’s condition and presenting symptoms. OIBO specialists are fellowship trained and board certified.
Lumbar epidural injections. Treat lower back and leg pain. Steroid and anaesthetic medications are injected into the lumbar epidural space. The steroid (cortisone) reduces inflammation. The anaesthetic (Lidocaine) immediately decreases pain.
Transforaminal injections. Treat spine and extremity pain. Spinal nerve roots exit vertebrae through tiny openings called foramina. A transforaminal injection targets compressed, irritated, and inflamed nerve roots. Steroid and anaesthetic medications are injected into the transforaminal epidural space.
Lumbar sympathetic injections. Treat lower extremity pain. Anaesthetic medication is injected near pain signalling lumbar sympathetic nerves. Pain signals are blocked and pain decreases very quickly.
Stellate ganglion injections. Treat upper extremity pain. Anaesthetic medication is injected near pain signaling cervical (neck) sympathetic nerves. Pain signals are blocked and pain decreases very quickly.
Selective nerve root blocks. Treat irritated and inflamed cervical, thoracic, and lumbar nerve roots. Steroid and anesthetic medications are injected. Pain relief occurs quickly.
Trigger point injections. Treat muscle pain and tension. Steroid and anaesthetic medications are injected into muscle trigger points and knots. Muscles and nerves relax and pain decreases quickly.
Injection therapy treats arthritis, spinal stenosis, herniated disc, sciatica, degenerative disc disease, fibromyalgia, chronic pain, and more. Scheduling and attending an initial consultation is the first step toward receiving an injection therapy solution. A complete medical history will be obtained, a physical examination will be performed, medical imaging tests will be ordered and analyzed. An accurate diagnosis will be made. A customized injection therapy treatment plan will be created. To schedule your appointment with a specialist, call or visit our contact page.
