BOTOX® may be more well known for cosmetic purposes, but it can also be effective in pain management. BOTOX® injections work by relaxing muscles and can be used to alleviate pain caused by chronic muscle spasms. BOTOX® can begin to relieve pain within a week of injection and results typically last for three months.
A bursa is fluid filled cushion that provides lubrication between muscles and bones. The bursa can become inflamed due to conditions such as bursitis or arthritis, causing pain and limiting range of motion. An injection of anti-inflammatory or steroid medication into the bursa can reduce swelling and relieve pain.
Carpal Tunnel Injection
Patients with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome experience pain, numbness, and tingling due to a pinched median nerve in the wrist. An injection of corticosteroid medication can help relieve symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.
Caudal Steroid Injection
A caudal steroid injection is used to treat pain in the lower back, including symptoms caused by bone spurs, sciatica, herniated discs, or other pain conditions. This treatment has proven effective for lower back pain and typically provides relief for several months.
Facet Joint Injections
Patients with facet joint osteoarthritis, or facet syndrome, may experience pain and reduced mobility. A facet joint injection delivers anti-inflammatory and anesthetic medicine to the facet joint to relieve pain. This treatment generally takes effect within a week of the injection with results lasting several months.
Lumbar Epidural Steroid Injection
Epidural steroid injection, also known as ESI, is an injection of anesthetic and corticosteroid medication in the lower back, specifically to the spinal nerve through the epidural space. This treatment is minimally invasive and highly effective at treating lower back pain and symptoms of sciatica, spinal stenosis, degenerative disc disease, and herniated discs.
Lumbar Transforaminal Epidural Steroid Injection
A Lumbar Transforaminal Epidural Steroid Injection (ESI) is sometimes referred to as a nerve block or a selective nerve root block. Once your doctor has identified the exact nerve that is causing pain, a Lumbar Transforaminal Epidural Steroid Injection can be used to inject medication directly to the nerve by accessing the foramen, which is the opening between the vertebrae in order to provide relief from back, neck and leg pain.
