Solve your pain without surgery
Injections can be prescribed for both diagnostic and therapeutic reasons. Some problems can be solved with a steroid injection. Other problems may need a specific nerve block to confirm the pain generator so that the appropriate therapy can be initiated.
We offer a wide range of options and work to create a plan that is best for you and your specific situation.
Epidural Steroid Injection
An Epidural Steroid Injection is the placement of a very strong anti-inflammatory medication (similar to cortisone) and a local anesthetic (like Novocain) close to injured nerves as they exit the spine where they become pinched or irritated.
The injected steroid medication helps to reduce the swelling of nerves and surrounding tissue, stop the release of painful chemicals, and promote healing.
Medial Branch Block
A Medial Branch Nerve Block is an injection of local anesthetic outside the facet joint near the tiny, but very painful nerves that supply the joint.
This block is an essential diagnostic test to prove where your pain is coming from. Two of these tests are required by most insurances. If the tests are successful, there is revolutionary procedure called Radiofrequency Neuroablation which has given thousands of patients years of pain relief. This is the best treatment to come along in years.
This is simply the best treatment option for most arthritic type back pain. The pain relief usually lasts for years. Radiofrequency Neuroablation uses an electrical current to heat up the injection needle tip, which essentially melts the very tiny pain nerve so it can no longer send pain transmissions to your brain.
Platelets are the components of your blood best known for blood clotting. Platelets also contain hundreds of
proteins called growth factors, which are important for healing of injuries. PRP is the separation of those platelets and plasma from the rest of the blood, which results in a high concentration of platelets within the plasma, hence, platelet-rich plasma. PRP attracts healing cells to tendon tissues that have deteriorated.

The main reason people are taking medication is to improve their quality of life. Though, if you don't feel well or are take multiple drugs, it can be difficult to remember taking the right medicines at the right time. When drugs are not taken properly, there is no improvement in the quality of life and in many cases it's deteriorating.
This is where medication management comes in; it can help individuals to receive the right prescriptions and ensure that they are taken at the right time and not taken in excess or abused. But there is a lot more to manage your medications.
