We believe that although injections may be helpful in confirming a diagnosis, they should be used primarily after a specific presumptive diagnosis has been established. Injections should not be used in isolation, but rather in conjunction with a program stressing muscle flexibility, strengthening, and functional restoration. Proper follow-up after injections to assess the patient’s treatment response and ability to progress in the rehabilitation program is essential.
These injections are an adjunct treatment, which facilitates participation in an active exercise program and may assist in avoiding the need for surgical intervention.
Types of Injections Offered
* Trigger point injections
* Sacroiliac joint injection
* Facet joint injections
* Radiofrequency procedures (rhizotomy)
* Epidural injections

These injections are mostly an adjunct treatment. In most cases it is recommended to participate in an active exercise program and together these treatments may assist in avoiding the need for surgical intervention.
