There are several procedures for pain management in the Joints, Back and Neck performed by Oasis Physicans and Surgeons. These are typically minimally invasive techniques or non-surgical injections that will help alleviate your acute pain and discomfort.
A bursa injection is a steroid injection into an inflammed bursa, a fluid-filled sac that prevents friction between muscle and bone, that can relieve inflammation of the bursa and significantly decrease correlated pain.
Epidural Steroid Injections
Epidural steroid injections are a very common form of treatment for many forms of lower back or leg pain, particularly related to sciatica.
Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA)
Radiofrequency ablation is a procedure to treat neck, back or joint pain where an electrical current is used to heat nerve tissue and reduce pain signals from that area.
Another steroid injection, a caudal epidural, is used to treat pain in patients suffering from chronic lower back or limb pain caused by herniated discs, sciatica, bone spurs, or other common back conditions.
Facet Joint Injections
A facet joint injection is an injection into the spine aimed at providing relief to the facet joint, the small joints between each segment of the spine that create stability and guide motion.
Sacroiliac Joint Injections
Sacroiliac joint injections are steroid injections into the sacroiliac joint, situated where the lower spine and pelvis connect. Sacroiliac joint pain can cause pain in the buttocks or back, and extend down one or both legs.
Discogram or Discography
A discogram is a diagnostic study used to identify the source of pain in the lower back or extremeties.
Nerve blocks can treat pain at a number of locations throughout the body. These injections of medication numb a group of nerves at the root cause of pain.
Steroid, or cortisone, injections are anti-inflammatory treatments designed to reduce pain at its source. Steroid injections are one of the most common treatments for back and joint pain.
Transforaminal Epidural Injections
A transforaminal epidural injection is a steroid injection into the epidural space of the exiting nerve root, aimed at reducing or eliminating pain in the lower back and legs.
