Although pain injections may be helpful, 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.
Types of Injections Offered
- Trigger point injections
- Sacroiliac joint injection
- Facet joint injections
- Radiofrequency procedures (rhizotomy)
- Epidural injections
- Peripheral joint injections such as Hip joint, elbow, knee and shoulder joint 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.
