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
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.
