Injections For Back, Neck, Leg and Arm Pain at DFW Laser Spine Institute

At DFW Laser Spine Institute, we focus on providing patients in the Dallas and Fort Worth area with minimally invasive treatment options as part of a personalized pain management plan. Our specialists offer a range of non-surgical injections, which can be used for therapeutic pain relief and as a diagnostic tool to help determine the underlying cause of chronic pain. Pain management Injections are available at our Colleyville, Frisco, and Rockwall, Texas locations and may be used as part of a comprehensive treatment plan along with physical therapy or prescription medication.

Botox Injections

There are a number of conditions associated with chronic muscle spasticity, when communication between the brain and muscles leads to prolonged contraction and tightness of the muscles. Muscle spasms can cause stiffness, pain, involuntary movement, fatigue, and other uncomfortable complications. Our doctors can inject BOTOX to relax spastic muscles, alleviating pain in as little as one week. Pain relief from BOTOX muscle injections typically lasts for up to three months.1

Bursa Injection

Our bones, muscles, and tendons are cushioned by small, fluid-filled sacs known as bursae. In patients with conditions like bursitis or arthritis, a bursa may become inflamed, leading to achiness, stiffness, pain, and swelling. By injecting anti-inflammatory medication or steroids directly into an inflamed bursa, we are able to control swelling and significantly reduce pain.2

Carpal Tunnel Injection

Carpal tunnel syndrome is a result of compression of the median nerve, and can cause a number of uncomfortable side effects including tingling, numbness, pain, or weakness of the hand. A corticosteroid injection can quickly reduce swelling and alleviate pain far more effectively than oral corticosteroids.3

Caudal Steroid Injection

When patients experience lower back pain or leg pain caused by sciatica, bone spurs, herniated discs, or other conditions, a caudal steroid injection into the bottom of the spine can provide them with effective, long-lasting relief.4

Facet Joint Injections

The facet joints connect the bones in the spine. Individuals who have facet joint osteoarthritis, facet joint arthritis, or other conditions affecting these sensitive joints may experience chronic lower back or neck pain and reduced mobility. By injecting anti-inflammatory and anesthetic medicine into the facet joint, we can help our patients achieve long-lasting relief from pain and improved mobility.

Lumbar Epidural Steroid Injection

Chronic lower back pain and decreased mobility can often result from conditions such as spinal stenosis, herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, sciatica, and others. Epidural steroid injections (ESI) to the spinal nerve are a common and highly effective treatment for the management of lower back pain and associated symptoms.

Lumbar Transforaminal Epidural Steroid Injection

Sometimes referred to as a nerve block or a selective nerve root block, a lumbar transforaminal epidural steroid injection (ESI) is administered directly to the nerve that is causing a patient’s pain. Not only does this treatment ease back and lower back pain, but it can also reduce inflammation to speed healing.

Stem Cell Therapy Injections

Stem Cell Therapy Injections can be used to treat pain in the lower back, upper back, or neck that is caused by disc issues such as degenerative disc disease. Stem cells are natural healers in the human body. For this procedure, the patient’s own cells are extracted from bone marrow and injected into the affected area to help provide restoration and pain relief.

Thoracic Epidural Steroid Injection

When patients encounter shoulder or upper back pain caused by pinched nerves, spinal stenosis, arthritis, or herniated discs, a thoracic epidural steroid injection (ESI) delivers anti-inflammatory medication to the source of the pain to provide relief.

Trigger Point Injections

Myofascial trigger points, commonly referred to as muscle knots, can cause chronic pain and limit range of motion and are often associated with fibromyalgia, myofascial pain, and tension headaches. Our doctors can inject small doses of steroids and anesthetic into trigger points, alleviating pain and helping to “break up” the knots in muscles.5
