Relief of chronic neck and back pain through non-surgical and non-narcotic treatment.

The goal of interventional pain management is to relieve, reduce or manage pain and improve a patient's overall quality of life through minimally-invasive techniques specifically designed to diagnose and treat painful conditions. Interventional pain management also strives to help patients return to their everyday activities quickly and without heavy reliance on medications.


Paint Management Services Offered in our office:

• Cervical and lumbar epidural steroid epidural injection
Cervical and lumbar epidural steroid injection
  • Cervical and lumbar transforaminal/interlaminar epidural steroid injection, caudal epidural steroid injection, selective nerve root blocks. Injection of steroid and anesthetic around nerve roots in the spinal canal, which may be compressed or “irritated” from disc herniation or arthritic stenosis.

• Lumbar facet joint injection
Lumbar facet joint injection
  • Cervical and lumbar zygopophyseal (facet) joint injection. Injection of local anesthetic and steroid into one or more of the small joints in the spine. These joints can become arthritic, and are often responsible for back or neck pain.


• Lumbar medial branch block
Lumbar medial branch block
  • This injection is similar to a facet joint injection, but the medication is placed outside the joint space, directed to the nerves that supply the facet joints, called the medial branches. If these blocks temporarily alleviate pain, the patient may be a candidate for medial branch radiofrequency ablation, which is a more permanent procedure to interrupt the pain carried by the medial branches.

• Lumbar medial branch radiofrequency ablation
Lumbar medial branch radiofrequency ablation
  • If either a facet joint injection or a medial branch block provides only temporary relief of pain, the patient is a candidate for radiofrequency ablation. This procedure uses radiofrequency energy to deaden the small medial branches supplying the facet joints. Pain relief of approximately 8-12 months is expected.


• Trigger point injection
Trigger point injection
  • An injection which uses a small needle and anesthetic to break up spasm in tight muscles. These taut bands of muscle, or “trigger points,” can be painful, and can carry pain which sometimes can resemble the pain of a pinched nerve. Trigger point injections may help to provide relief from this pain.

• Sacroiliac joint injection
Sacroiliac joint injection
  • Injection of anesthetic and steroid into the sacroiliac joint, the large joint between the spine and the pelvis. This joint can become inflamed and/or arthritic and is often the source of low back or butock pain.


• Hip joint injection
Hip joint injection
  • Injection of anesthetic and steroid into the hip joint. This joint can become inflamed and/or arthritic and is often the source of groin and leg pain.

• Peripheral joint injections
Peripheral joint injections
  • Injection of anesthetic and steroid into other peripheral joints, such as the knee or shoulder.

• Occipital nerve block
