In recent years, injections have become the most popular form of pain relief in a surgical setting. Not only do they work rapidly, but they are minimally invasive and often less painful than alternative methods. At Center for Spine Care, we utilize multiple, well-tested injection options to give our valued patients much needed pain relief.
Used for more than just labor and delivery, an epidural is a useful pain reliever for a wide variety of spinal issues, including sciatica and herniated discs. By decreasing inflammation in soft tissue, epidurals can provide much needed relief when patients need it most.
Applied directly to the facet joint, facet injections are particularly helpful to those who suffer from arthritis and other back pain issues. Facet injections are typically a steroid or some sort of local anesthetic and they work relatively quickly.
